So I was at Macy's today, petting the sweaters in the Eileen Fisher section. (They feel gooooooood.) Anyway, naturally I can't remember the exact wording, but this one tag said something like "Yarn Links" and was advertising the stitch as the new texture of luxury.
In case you were wondering, the "new texture of luxury" is garter stitch.
It was a really nice sweater, though. LOTS of really nice sweaters.
I wish I wasn't poor.
