Sweater trivia

Prior to “sweaters” being called by that named….they were called Jersey’s or Gansey’s. Pullovers got the name “sweaters” when they were used as athletic uniforms. The athlete would “sweat” in them.  Crew neck sweaters were worn by the crew team of a university.

Mr. Rogers (a lovely day in this neighborhood) sweaters were knit by his mother, Mrs. Nancy McFeely Rogers. She knit 12 sweaters for him, knitting one a month for a year.

Aran sweaters are named for a group of Islands in Ireland.
