She Had Me at "Old Navy"...



As one who lives in So Cal attired in a wardrobe of Old Navy t-shirts and jeans, my handknits don't get near the wear I would like. So when I saw Bonnie-Marie modeling her Mondo Cable Vest over an Old Navy top, I knew it was destiny.


Knit in Silk Garden, it's lightweight enough to get some wear out here in our not so icy temps and goes with most of the shirts in my closet. I feel so hip!





It was a super quick knit and I'm glad nobody's grading me on my seaming because I threw the pieces together at superspeed. The only modifications I might make if I had it to do over again, would be to knit it in the round and attach the shoulders with a 3 needles bind-off... or maybe simply seam them a wee bit better than I did. Doesn't matter though... I still love it!

Fun vest! A perfect way to spruce up the Old Navy wardrobe -
also, I love the little lego knitter your son made - my son (lego lover) thinks it's cool too and he seldom thinks anything knitting related is "cool"!

Wow! It is perfect for the warmer climate!
I love the colors, too.
Any Silk Garden is good, but that one is especially good!
