It may be a Canadian day but can celebrate National Sweater Day here in the United States also. As a way to bring awareness to global climate change, conservation organization World Wildlife Fund Canada (WWF-Canada) has announced February 7 as National Sweater Day for all Canadians. For National Sweater Day, people are asked to “be a dear, turn down the heat and put on that sweater.” Should you need a reminder to wear a sweater, be sure to sign up online to get a call from a Granny with their “Book A Granny” program. They have dozens of grannies, omas, bubbes, nai nais and more standing by at their Granny Call Centre like Ruth, Audrey, Mavis and Florence.
You can knit your own sweater and the Art Division has lots of knitting books and ebooks for you to use. Below is a small sampling of what we have.
