Ever since this I have had chevrons on the mind. I would love to have a nice slippery nylon quilted vest ala 1973 in a good harvest gold/orange/ecru combo. Alas no vest, so I knit a version instead. To tie in with my craving for 70’s colors and motifs – Stitchy McYarnpants is coming! For those of you not in the know, I work for the local Mega Bookstore putting together all the events and whatnot, and my store is the first stop on Stitchy’s Mock and Roll Tour for her book. I’m so thrilled to have her – she was one of my first favorite blogs.
I thought that in her honor I would knit something atrocious – yet cute – in a horribly outdated pattern and color and do it in acrylic. SO here it is. The Mon and Wed night knitting groups both agree that its sorta Charlie Brownish. The close up is just so you can see the novelty yarn that I worked in as a cherry-on-top.
