Ugly Sweater Day Revisited

December 16, 2015


What follows is a reworking of a post I made last year at around this time. As I’m wearing the same sweater today, I figured—why not?

Like “beauty,” the concept of “ugly” sometimes
resides only in the eye of the beholder.

Today is Ugly Sweater Contest Day, and I
will be wearing my scratchy entry all day long.

My sweater was craftily augmented last night
by my wife and her trusty embroidery machine.

She appliquéd a cute reindeer on a goodwill-bought,
black and white, cable-knit sweater.

The design is a bit small, and treads water in
the center of a salt-and-pepper-patterned sea.

I think that I’m fortunate to have such a thoughtful wife
who is industrious, and highly skilled in the fabric arts.

That’s what I think.
