I don’t like reading the news. I think I should do it more often, but some days, it’s too hard. On the other hand, I love a newspaper. There’s something about them that is so aesthetically pleasing to me. Perhaps it’s the black and white contrast, the fine fonts or their carefully designed pages.
This raglan sweater has the same effect on me: I love the alternating blocks of vertical and horizontal stripes that flow like the news on the paper.
