Sweater Curse

Those of us who knit, know about the “sweater curse” when knitting a sweater (or scarf) for a boyfriend.  Today, I read an article from the New Yorker written by Alison Lurie, dated August 28, 2013,  reviewing Knitting Yarns:  Writers on Knitting, editor Ann Hood, which mentions the same can happen to a relationship between two women.

Wow! who knew the “sweater curse” is not gender/relationship specific.  This phenomenon  is interesting on so many different levels.
