New Threads TUESDAY!

My love affair with retro continues -

Finally ready for its closeup? My vintage-inspired little fitted cardigan…

Looking good with pumps or little red flats & jeans, this is going to be my “jacket” in the coming weeks.

We’re heading into some stormy, chilly weather and a little COLOR THERAPY might just be the ticket to play.

Pattern: Chic Knits
Designer: Bonne Marie Burns
Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light Color #4294 Turquoise Mix

    Love it. I also would like the pattern, please! And if you don’t wear the scarf, at least tie it onto your handbag – that’s awesome.

    Bravo! Bonne Marie! I just love that color combo.

  12. cruz says:

    How do you find the time to knit all those fine rows of stockinette??

  13. Bonne Marie says:

    Ah, Miss Cruz, I have been a slave to Netflix & bad weather! It’s my totally autopilot knitting; must always have a St st project to calm down with…

    It is my cocktail, my happy hour(s).

  14. Anniesue says:

    YES!! Like I’m always telling anyone who will listen, turquoise and red is the ultimate colour combination…

  15. Bonne Marie says:

    I made a dress in high school out of turquoise slubbed fabric (linen/cotton) and used red piping around the edges. It had little tucks in the yoke, also red piped – how I wish I still had it!

  16. Delica says:

    Cute – All heads will turn!

  17. Bee says:

    Great colour combo. Would look fantastic with a white shirt, jeans and red shoes – and your scarf of course! I echo the others, will the pattern be available?
