Saturday Stops - Sweater

All Aboard the Meme Express – Saturday, January 30, 2010

The last weekend in January, in much of the world, spells sweater weather. (Of course, most of us don heavy-duty parkas and winter gear on top of our sweaters as well.)

Sweaters are popular this year – particularly cardigan sweaters. Michelle Obama, American First Lady, is often photographed in cardigan sweaters.

In fact, cardigan sweaters have become Mrs. Barack Obama’s trademark fashion must-have, particularly for more casual occasions. Michelle Obama seems to have a cardigan sweater to accompany nearly every style she selects - except, perhaps, for her most formal ensembles (as for White House state dinners and other black-tie occasions).

Of course, a classic children’s television personality also displayed a partiality for cardigan sweaters? Remember Fred Rogers, or Mister Rogers Neighborhood? Mister Rogers nearly never went without a favorite cardigan sweater on his program for young viewers.

The Meme Express prompt for today is cozy for a winter weekend:


Why not write your own blog post today?

Here are a few optional questions – until you have your blog buttoned up.

Do you love sweaters?
How many sweaters do you think you have in your closet right now?
Do you prefer cardigan sweaters, crew-neck sweaters, v-neck sweaters, sweater vests or turtleneck sweaters?
If you wear cardigan sweaters, do you prefer cardigans that button or zip?
Do wear cotton sweaters, angora sweaters, cashmere sweaters or woolen sweaters?
Have you ever knitted a sweater?
Who is your favorite sweater-wearer?
Why not post photos of sweater styles you like . . . or don’t like?

Don’t sweat it. Today’s blog is all about fashion fun.

Perhaps this concept will inspire you to create and post a drawing, a poem, a photograph, a short story, or a journal entry. Then return here to leave a comment with your link. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)
