Grant Lawrence, not phased by the summer heat

Catch Grant rockin’ the CBC Sweater at folk festivals across Canada this summer. Grant, veteran Canadian radio personality and lead singer for the Indie band The Smugglers, has been officially given props for being able to control his body temperature!

"A little too warm to wear today but I will take photos of me wearing it at the folk fests across Canada this summer for you! This is by far the best sweater I have ever owned. Everywhere I go, I receive compliments, whether I’m in the middle of nowhere or in the middle of the city. I love my quintessentially Canadian Granted sweater".
– Grant Lawrence, Host, CBC Radio 3

    I would love to get one of these sweaters. I love the design and CBC. Is there anyway to get one made or a similar one made?

    […] I know, it’s awesome! The thing is, he didn’t knit it. That sweater is the handiwork (quite literally) of the Vancouver-based knitwear design company Granted. Granted is in its second year of operation; it’s an offshoot of a family-run business that’s specialized in Canadian heritage sweaters since 1978. No, not the stereotypical curling-stones-and-sitting-ducks sweaters you’re thinking of, but honest-to-goodness Cowichan sweaters, handmade of 100% wool in Vancouver. The old sweaters might have leaned toward traditional patterns, but these days Granted is pushing the envelope a little, tweaking those traditional intarsia designs into a collection of handknits with a decidedly modern edge.But don’t think they’ve left Canadian heritage in the dust. One look at this fabulous custom-made CBC sweater (worn here by CBC Radio 3’s Grant Lawrence) proves that Granted knows exactly where our hearts lie. (Read what Grant wrote about his sweater here.)
