Zephyr Style Tree Jacket

I've been thinking about making the Zephyr Style Tree Jacket lately. It is a very pretty sweater, although I'd probably wear it with a cami or something underneath . I enjoyed the last Zephyr pattern I received, but my yarn choice and sizing were less than stellar so I never felt the calling to finish it. I'll probably frog it (or throw it out since its mohair) and start with a nice varigated yarn like on the model. I got some money for my birthday from my mom and dad so I could buy the yarn more or less guilt free (although I need bras and new sandals too). I haven't seen anyone's variations yet, but that was just with checking google. I need to go to Ravelry, where it sounds like more and more people are calling this mecca.
Sister is wearing her Swallowtail alot, albeit around her fanny, and already got a pull in it which took my breath away momentarily, but such is life.
Music has been a big part of the scene here. I saw some pretty good bands Friday night at the Mercury Lounge, and saw these guys



yesterday at the Great South Bay Music Festival. I LOVE the Subdudes! Terrific fun, groovin' with the kids as well. When I got home I thought I got more tan, until it ran down the drain in the shower. One of those dusty, dirty, outdoor shows I hate and love. And now on Wednesday it's off to Roseland Ballroom to see the Fratellis with my 16 year old daughter. I guess I didn't get the memo that I have to stop all this and act my age...


Here's more pics of Tommy and the boys...





















The family was front and center...

1. Buy the pattern and yarn - you can knit a bra and go barefoot!
2. Subdudes - YAYYYYY!!! My hometown boys - I'm jealous.
3. Please check my blog later this evening for overdue thanks and appreciation.
