Birthday Intarsia



My mom made this vest for me eight or ten years ago. I wore it yesterday (ds's birthday -- today is mine) to his school and people were looking. It has a lot of crochet and embroidery embellishments on top of the intarsia designs.

I wish I knew where the pattern came from. She made herself a cardigan version. All I know is that the yarn is Tahki Cotton Classic and it has worn well.

Look at the little smiley face buttons. Happy, happy!

BTW, how come your blogger comments don't allow me to sign in as "Other" so I can leave my real name??

Love the sweater, that must have taken your mom a long time to knit.

Debbie, I recently changed some of the settings because I was getting comment spam (which I can't figure out how to delete, bah!), so that could be it. . .

Lori, that is an AMAZING coincidence. . .
