Walk This Way

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I thought that in her honor I would knit something atrocious – yet cute – in a horribly outdated pattern and color and do it in acrylic.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.

  1. What a darling jumper – I can see how you might think it is atrocious – but it IS cute. : )

    On the other hand – that photo of the penguins is actually a little unsettling – I never realised they could look demonic!

  2. Yay! I can’t wait to meet you. You’ll definitley be hearing from me in the coming weeks. You’ve already been so helpful, but I’ll probably have more questions or just need some reassuring that I won’t make an ass out of myself. I’ve kind of blocked out any thoughts of the tour, but since it’s so close, I’d better start coming to terms. đŸ™‚

  3. “Uniqua is her name and also her species. She doesn’t look like any other creature on this planet.” So says the Backyardigans site. I myself think she looks a bit like a chameleon. What???? Demonic penguins??? You girls are out there!! To each his own. Talk with you soon.
    Love ya always,

  4. I’m with you on the phobia front. Mine’s not penguins, but rather dead fish. I’m deathly afraid of them. Deathly afraid of live ones too, but dead one’s moreso. I can’t explain it or make it go away.
    I’ve been wanting to make a Charlie Brown sweater for my Biff. Just wondering if you followed a pattern for this or whether it sprang fully grown from your imagination. In either case, you did a great job!
