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!
