September 7th, 2010
Fifty-nine sweaters and I arrived at the deviantART headquarters today. It sure is big here. We were left in a hallway for a little bit (I could peek out a crack) but we got stacked against a wall somewhere.

I'm a little scared.

Today, a man opened our box. Since I was on top he grabbed me and held me up and looked at me critically. "Perfect!" he said, and I couldn't help but blush.

I got moved away from all the others and stuffed into a little box. It's really, really dark in here, because there's no light coming in the cracks. Now I'm definitely scared, but at least it's all warm and cosy.

There was a whole lot of jostling today. It's half exciting, half terrifying.

September 21st, 2010
I've arrived! I woke up to the sound of tape ripping, and then the box being thrown open. The light was blinding, but I quickly saw the grinning face of a girl. She squealed and threw me around her, so my sleeves wrapped around her shoulders.

I think it felt like a hug.

(I'm not scared anymore.)
This was written for the deviantSTYLE contest.

I adopted the perspective of a sweater, and tried to imagine what it would be like to be delivered. I tried to make it somewhat childlike, with emphasis on the fear and relief. And happiness.
