It's a lie.
Even if you can knit, thrift. Maybe especially if you knit.
In the midst of the never-ending apartment hunt yesterday we wandered into a thriftstore and came out with our spirits lifted in the form of a truly awesome, functioning antique radio (for my kitchen NPR habit), and this incredible sweater.
It's 50% wool, and 50% yak.
At a thrift store.
At first I considered frogging it for the yarn, but miraculously not only is it made of luxury materials but the cut is actually my style. Lots of positive ease, drape-y, with a hi-low hem. It's from Vince, a company I had never heard of before... but a quick troll around their website left me feeling like I just got the find of a lifetime. So, I won't be unraveling this sweater - at least not while I still love the fit.
