The Perfect Christmas Gift: I Found It

In CategoryNavel Gazing

‘Member last year how I gave Jim the Meggings for Christmas?


I have been wondering how I would ever top that.

Well lookie here –


SWANTS. As in, Sweater Plus Pants Equals.

Apparently they are all the rage in Iceland.

Do not be dismayed if you haven’t heard of them yet. I am very fashion-forward, you know.

As it happens, I am also very into Recycled Sweaters this year. I have a whole laundry basket full of them sitting not 5 feet from me this instant. One day soon, hopefully before December 24th, they will be turned into Sweater Stockings. Or perhaps Sweater Mittens.

Or perhaps even Sweater Pants.

You know you want some.

    I don’t know about fashionable, but they look very cozy. As in “Lets all put on our sweater pants and do our science lesson in front of the fire.” lol

    Are they wool sweaters? If so, I’d wash them up and make cute felted things! Baskets, bags, etc.

    Dear Deb,

    I miss you. I keep coming back, and it’s still the swants post. It was disturbing the first time, but after checking back every day for the last several weeks, I think I’ve been desensitized and now find them cute. You’d better come back because I am *this* close to purchasing a pair for my husband.
