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.

    Fantastic outfit!
    We have had a weirdly warm winter, here in NYC. However, a frigid snap this weekend has brought out all my warm layers.

    Even better are the two sweaters I found at Buffalo Exchange yesterday, one a huge, but lightweight, merino/mohair sweater in a green/gray rugby stripe. The other is a big black open front cardigan in a sort of shaker knit.

    That cardigan is gorgeous! I’ve noticed that there are way more Irish style cable knit jumpers that lean over to the bulky side and make me look like a marshmallow haha – this one totally avoids that!
