That is the question. And I think it gets asked about every year this time, namely: Do I want to spend a lot of time knitting something with potentially limited wearability? My inner hippie wants one and I never was brave enough to wear one of the baja hoodies back in the 90s, so maybe that explains the allure. Or the fact that this one just looks so comfy (and the knitwear designer is modeling the hell out of it):

The older I get, the more I’m ok with wearing blankies and comfy shoes.
