Inspired by the sensational color combo in Sylvia’s Horizon sweater, I’ve started a little fire here in the MW.

This is the start of a slightly cropped vest, using the Ribby Shell pattern. It uses the plain panel version but starts the panel later so the bottom ribbing will be longer. I think the neckline will morph into another form as well…

Isn’t this the most RIOTOUS of colors? But of course, it is Lorna’s Laces [Shepards Worsted], and our home town girl Beth Casey, named this one after one of my very favorite streets: Irving Park. I’ve always referred to this on assignment as *Irv*, fondly, like a chummy friend.

And I hope that is what this will be – a kickIT sort of everyday chill buster! I am totally into the layers now that the temps have fallen loooowwwwwwer [at least from last week, you know in the MW, it can go back to 70 tomorrow. For 10 minutes.]

It’s all about the VEST these days in Chicago – my good friend Corinne keeps showing up at KIP in beautiful vest after vest and I’m HOOKED!

New Threads Tuesday!


Pattern: Chic Knits *CeCe*
Designer: Bonne Marie Burns
Yarn: Rowan *Calmer*
Color: Coffee Bean #481
Gauge: 20 sts/28 rows over 4″
Needles: #8

WHOOT! My 3/4 length sleeve CeCe is FINI! A special happiness fills the house when an FO hits the Runway @Chez Chic! If only there was some way to knit faster – I got such a lust for clothes – I stash dove last night and found a bag of DK Patons Cabled Merino in Black – am going to do another one in Black – oh no, are the Holiday engines revving up?

I am totally lusting after Black Wool Sweaters. I know I’ve been threatening to knit a black Aran for over a year – seeing Emily’s oh-so-FAB black one at the Dulaan Knit-In put me over the top! But I need a little something for the holidays too – so another CeCe is ON. Number 4. I’m crazy in love. And CeCe needs these boots for walking

I actually had a picture of me wearing this then I forgot and re-formatted my CF card to do a shoot and POOF! Oh well – when I’m all fancied up and out for some flash metro soir
