Pattern palpitations

bazinga – 1. A catchy phrase to accompany your clever pranks. As popularized by Sheldon Cooper (The Big Bang Theory).  2. A short post highlighting something that Emma and Kelly think is freaking fabulous.

I haven’t done a Bazinga! post in a while.  But this morning, I caught an eyeful of this pattern:

VKEF14_Men_11_medium2Oh, be still my heart!  This is a freaking fabulous pattern.  I love waistcoats and this one is yummy (as is the photo, the styling, the model; what’s not to love here?)  I sent a quick note to Emma: “Do you think this qualifies for a Bazinga?”  “Most definitely,” she replied.

This pattern is designed by the very nice and talented Franklin Habit (I’ve met him so I know whereof I speak).  It’s called the #8 Fitted Waistcoat and is published in the Early Fall 2014 edition of Vogue Knitting.  It’s hot off the presses.  Knitters, get your needles ready!
