Now if only my camera would turn up. Remember how sure I am I packed it in something soft? If it turned into this sweater I want it back!

I have no idea where this sweater came from. I was choosing a "good" sweater (no holes, no stains, not too much pilling) to wear to my allergist appointment this afternoon, when I saw this bit of cable knit peeking out of the bottom of the stack. "That's not my oatmeal lambswool from the eighties" I said. No, the oatmeal lambswool was on top of it. A beige-ish wool blend sweater with small cables on the body and the sleeves. A label from a company completely unknown to me. No identifying marks on the plastic shipping envelope. (Except for size and color--camel? in my day camel was nothing like that.) It doesn't look like it's been worn, and I could swear I've never seen it before. When I packed I just picked up a whole stack of brownish sweaters and put them in a box, and the same when I unpacked them.
