Thursday? Sweater?

The internet has reminded us yet again that today is none other than Sweater Thursday. Despite the sweater photos in my inbox… I forgot. I apologize! Oh man, I feel so shamed.

BUT, last night I took out my telescope and snapped some pictures of Jupiter – which is kinda like the sweater wearing uncle at the family reunion of our solar system.

Jupiter, wearing stripes today... also... everyday

I think I could probably take a better picture, but we’ll save that for another day. Let’s get to the rest of our sweatered peers.

We have a few newcomers in our midst. Let’s all say hello to Andy. Hi Andy!

Andy, with his dog Toby

Andy is looking great in his V-neck. I’m going to pretend that his dog Toby is wearing a matching sweater.

Next up? Aubree

Purple Blend Argyle! Fantastic!

Two things to note in this picture. First, Aubree’s sweater is mega-classy. Second, so too is her plaid water bottle- I am jealous. Welcome to Sweater Thursday Aubree!

Ben’s up next!

Zippered Sweater with Ribbed Collar

I am a fan of the zipper collared sweater. I think I would wear these more frequently on Sweater Thursdays except that they don’t work as well with ties.

Colleen is back!

Excellent Color Choice!

I love that color Colleen. I’m not sure what its official name is, but it’s probably something like “Impressively Aqua”

Colleen’s twin sister Erin is jumping on the sweater train today too!

More Argyle!

I really enjoy Argyle. I need to purchase more argyle sweaters.

Next up, our newest sweatered friend proves that sweaters aren’t just for those of us with opposable thumbs. Let’s welcome Austin to Sweater Thursday.

Austin in classic stripes

Great choice Austin. Great choice. (thanks to Sara in Savannah for this contribution)

Jocelyn is back!

With Penny!

Apparently Penny wasn’t too pleased to be forced into a photo-op this morning. Still, it was worth it for the sweaters.

Eileen joins us with a homemade sweater!


I’m going to paste Eileen’s comments direct as I find them hilarious.

This one’s homemade, and as promised – it’s mangled, and my first example of my new fall fashion line: manglewear. It’s way too long – goes to about mid-thigh, and the sleeves need to be rolled and pinned back because they’re about 3 inches too long as well. I’m the best! Time for me to pay more attention while I knit.

ha ha! Any homemade sweater is a great one. I stand by this. mostly.

Sweatered in Seattle

Patrick enters his first sweater of the season on a surprisingly cloudy Seattle day. He’s wearing red stripes in honor of Veterans day!

Sweater Update!

A bunch more sweaters have come in! What a day!

Tavis returns!

Whoa! I think this is our first Skull sweater

Tavis is wearing a homemade skully sweater. Look at his intensity!

Tavis’ wife Julie joins us as well


This picture looks like it might have been taken in an elementary school. I am mildly concerned for our future generation of alcoholics.

Finally, we have Elizabeth!

Such Contrast!

Elizabeth, I love the contrasting colors in your sweater. It’s a bold vibrant sweater that speaks to your ability to dominate your cubical environment.

    It’s barely 1100EST and already there are SO MANY excellent submissions. Also, TWO dogs. Overwhelming awesomeness.

      Eileen, I made sure to include Penny just for you

          You also love Google. I’m beginning to think you actually like cats but then you like to lie about it. I would like Google to maybe be in next week’s Sweater Thursday picture. Yes.

    A few things. I don’t have on a sweater but I do have on a bow tie. How about bow tie Fridays? Eileen: is that a toilet seat behind you? WTH? Also, is that a ladder or train tracks on your sweater? I can’t tell.

    • 11/11/2010 at 3:29 pm

      There is a guy at the school I work who DOES DO BOW TIE FRIDAYS! You’re on to something.

    • 11/11/2010 at 4:09 pm

      Dear Adam,
      You are the worst. That is a toilet seat behind me – it’s the crappiest gift ever. Additionally, IT IS A LADDER TO MY FACE. Or train tracks to my brain? I hate my sweater. Thanks.

    It’s a big day for argyle!!! I’m wondering if me, Aubree, and Liz are all wearing the same Old Navy argyle sweater in different colors.

    And hola to the gingers!

    • 11/11/2010 at 4:09 pm

      Yep, mine’s from Old Navy!! wooo hoooo

    The tequila 50’s mama and the SWEET red ‘rotary’ phone are in my sister’s kitchen. BOOYA. Also behind Tavis is their living room wall – complete with length-of-the-room ‘birds on wire’ wall decal. I love them so much! The people. And the sweaters.

    I think we are, though I didn’t wear a tank underneath. Am I showing too much??
