Default Ventilation

The first few cotton-jersey jerseys I made had
extremely-unsatisfactory vents. I didn't want a zipper next to my
skin, so I used snaps, and it was impossible to make the placket neat.

Eventually, I realized that I never unzip my jersey for ventilation; I
should make the necks of my jerseys exactly like the necks of my

And then I switched to making linen jersies so that I wouldn't have to
cover my arms with hot greasy sunscreen. I have two jersey-jerseys
left, one with and one without a snap placket. Both are still around
because I don't like them very much; I've worn out two linen jerseys
since I made the newer cotton jersey.

Last Monday, I went into Meijer. I took off my windbreaker and my
scarf, and mourned a bit for the late Grace Jones, who made jerseys
that could be taken off when you go into a store. Then I remembered
that I have an eighth of a yard of hook-and-eye tape down the front of
my jersey.

So I guess I do open my neck for ventilation.

Did it again on Saturday. Same store.

(I forgot when I was in Walmart.)
