The Truly Terribly Horrible Sweater … That Grandma Knit (By Debbie Macomber and Mary Lou Carney) – Cameron’s grandma sends him a sweater that she knit for his birthday. It has red, yellow, green, blue and orange stripes and big buttons. Cameron decides he will never wear it and tries to think of ways to ruin or lose the sweater. But when Grandma visits, she explains that each part of the sweater has a story behind it. As she knit the green stripes, she thought about watching Cameron kick the winning goal on the soccer field. As she knit the orange stripes, she was remembering how much Cameron loves to eat oranges. Each color has a reason behind it. Suddenly, the sweater doesn’t look so horrible anymore and Cameron is proud to wear it.
