For several years, I’ve relied on my huge Icelandic tunic sweater to keep me toasty on days when the windchill dips below -10. But, finally accepting that we’re likely to have more than a few such days each winter and that wearing the same sweater for a week straight might get a little stinky, I started exploring other options on eBay. I’ve always liked the look of heavy, cabled Irish sweaters but the ones I unearthed at thrift stores were always too bulky. I took a chance on this cardigan, and just adore it. Not exactly sleek, but a somewhat figure-skimming design with all the wind-repelling properties of my Icelandic knit.
