Cold Comforts

"The first cashmere sweater I owned was dusty sugar pink, and I wore it so a boy I liked would want to put his arms around me. I imagined us at the pub, his hand resting with ownership on my soft shoulder. I was 15 and had yet to understand boys or see “ownership” as a rather sinister concept; all I knew was that the sweater could draw touch. It had been a Christmas present, and hidden within its gossamer folds was, I knew, the key to sweater-girl-sophisticate heaven. Lana Turner, Jane Russell, eat your hearts out. "
