Description from

It turns out that the sweater curse isn't actually about fear of commitment and traditional domestic activities; it's about driving your significant other crazy, first by inquiring what EXACTLY he wants in a sweater, then asking him try on a partial sweater in various stages of completion, then by making him wear the finished sweater a million times in inappropriate weather while you try to take a good picture.

Then, just to make things more interesting, changing your mind entirely and beginning the process again (hey, at least this is the same yarn and I didn't have to interrogate him about color a second time).

The good news is that I've done all this so you don't have to, and that it's much easier to take pictures of people you aren't dating.
