OK. Twist my arm. Here's the latest pix of the VH1 Shawl:
Looks like knit mashed potatoes.
Look for it to take over my neighborhood, soon.
From the Daily Candy site:
Cable knit no longer means having to date someone on the rugby team or voting Republican.
And no need to dust off the penny loafers and dip into prepster chic, courtesy MJ (Marc Jacobs).
Jacobs's neo-preppy, 100 percent wool, cable-knit, fingerless gloves stop right below the elbow and are more urban league than Ivy League. The cozy arm warmers come in aqua, lavender, and cream. The exposed fingertips allow for an easy grip on the steering wheel of Mom's Volvo. All in all, a very stylish way to keep warm during those autumn trips to the Cape.
Move over, sweater sets.
There's a new official preppy hand look.
Fingerless Aran Gloves
Smart Knitistas like us could probably figure out how to make these, dontcha think? I love the pastel shades, too. Elann has some nice fuzzy Pinguoin Soft Hair on closeout for $2.10 per skein and available in pastel shades. Must. Control. Mouse. Now. Must. Not. Order. More. Yarn.
