One more!

Hi again, just a quick addendum to the Vest-uary post. I completely spaced out on a very cute vest pattern! It’s the Ribby-Yo Vest by Cathy Carron. Knit in Peruvia Quick, it’s available now in the Spring 2009 issue of Knitscene, one of my favorite knitting publications…

This vest was featured in a very cool column called Style Spotting. Styling knitwear can be difficult–you don’t want to have that unfortunate slip shod, ramshackle look that pop culture usually saddles us crafters with. We know we’re better than that!! This column helps by discussing the sartorial properties of specific garments and showing a few cute underpinnings and accessories. To quote my fellow UMass alumni the Pixies, it’s educational! I don’t know about you but I’d like a whole issue’s worth of this sort of content…here is a preview:

Cute! With such a chunky yarn, you’d have plenty of time to whip this up before the end of February/Vest-uary, especially if you have President’s Day off…

More excess –  this time in the form of knit-in tucks.

Don’t you love that Eleanor can knit too?  We chose a different photo for the book – one  that focuses more on the vest, but I am still enamored of this shot. Adina Klein helped us out with the styling for this story  – that’s the Pure MerinoCapecho” she was knitting for her step mom, lent to Eleanor for the moment.

I can tell you more about the cool new yarn it’s knit in when I can link it all to the Berroco site.
