Oh! My awesome newly-finished sweater vest! When Mia wore a striped chevron vest a few years ago, I knew I wanted one, and put it on my list of things to knit. After one false start, I finally finished this up a couple weeks ago. If you are interested in the technical aspects, you can read much more about it over at our knitting blog.
Last weekend was AwesomeCon and this was my outfit for Saturday’s adventures. I paired my awesome newly-finished sweater vest with little pink hoops and The Prince of All Cosmos for a subtle geeky flair.
Happy cat socks and super comfortable Crocs flats rounded out the outfit and made it possible to not be too cranky for wandering the con floor all afternoon. The line to get in was ridiculously long (but not nearly as ridiculous on a San Diego Comic Con level) and nearly every session I wanted to attend was full, but I caught some amazing cosplay—Ursula! In fact, two Ursulas!—and chatted with a few very nice people.
