After scouring eBay for the most dreadful holiday sweaters, I came upon some so ugly I'll be posting one each day for the rest of the week. Each piece to be posted is a men's sweater, and free of homemade decoration such as cotton balls, glitter fabric paint and garland. I saw plenty of those and my eyes are still recovering, so I won't be bludgeoning your holiday spirit as well. This also seems like a good time to run a contest. I've been invited to several ugly holiday sweater parties, so I think it's fitting to throw one via the Cable Knit Charlestonian.
Take a photo of yourself wearing an ugly holiday sweater, or somebody else wearing one, or even one you find at a thrift shop. Send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org, perhaps with a caption of your reaction to the sweater. The deadline will be this Sunday at 10PM Eastern, and the champ will be announced the following day. The winner will receive a set of vintage Lochcarron tartan ties, the perfect accessory for this time of year.
So I said I'd only post one sweater a day but I need to catch up from Monday and honestly, I'd definitely wear the first one. The second? Well, I'd rather wear an outfit of Tommy Hilfiger.
