As he changes into his sweater, Mister Rogers takes out all of the sweaters in the closet. After changing into his sneakers, Mister Rogers shares a picture of his mother before looking at the detail of the sweaters she has made for him.

Visiting Bob Trow's workshop, Mister Rogers shows viewers a bubble machine as well as a knitting machine.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin and Handyman Negri eagerly await Reardon's arrival. Planning to present Reardon with a sweater, Lady Aberlin decides to be a sweater-maker in the opera while Handyman Negri decides to play the part of a bubble. Meanwhile, Cornflake S. Pecially is at the school teaching the children about rocking chairs and Reardon arrives in the Neighborhood to share a song with Lady Elaine.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely stops by with his camera to show a film he has made about sweaters being made in a factory.
