8 Supposedly Cursed Objects
The Sweater Curse
Apparently in knitting circles, the "curse of the love sweater" is a real thing. It's the term used to describe when a knitter begins a sweater for someone they love, and the relationship ends before the sweater is completed. A variety of reasons and justifications for the curse are given -- such as "The knitter sees the sweater as a significant Thing, having chosen the pattern and color carefully, and having invested hours of labor; the recipient sees the sweater as a thing that can be bought at the Gap for $35." But let's just say, don't make a sweater for a dude you like, okay?
