Have you ever found a piece of clothing that made you feel great for absolutely no reason? Not like that dress that makes you feel a million bucks because it make your waist look a size smaller and your boobs a cup size bigger, but a piece of clothing that does absolutely nothing towards making you look younger/older/slimmer/curvier/whatever you want to look and yet still manages to make you feel amazing.
This sweater is my special for no conceivable reason sweater. It isn't shapeless, but my torso isn't a square so it's shapeless on me. It is made out of pure wool, and sort of itchy. The sleeves swallow my hands. It isn't very long.
And yet, I love it. It is warm. It has sheepies on it. My mummy knit it (for my aunt, long before I was born). One of the many colours in it makes me look "healthy" (according to my dad). And when I wear it, I feel like I'm glowing, like nothing can touch me.
I don't know why, I'm going to put it down to Mummy Magic, or madness, I'm not sure which.
Have you ever had a piece of clothing that was unexplainably special?
(I think the title might be from the song Magic by The Cars. But don't quote me on that.)
