What is the sweater curse?

Is it sewing seems?

No.

Being an ancient craft, knitting has amassed a collection of myths. One of these is the sweater curse.

Wikipedia defines the sweater curse as 'a situation in which a knitter gives a hand-knit sweater to a significant other, who quickly breaks up with the knitter.'

In this interesting article written by Katherine, she explains that the curse isn't simply pertain to sweaters, but extends to all knitting of size.

After encountering this myth, my muse danced and I began writing THE SWEATER CURSE.
