I found this hand knit vest and knew I had to make it part of my winter wear.
There is just something so special when you pick up a piece in a thrift store (for four dollars, no less) and know it was made by hand. For some reason I often have the notion that I need to rescue these pieces from some untimely demise or neglect.
This sweater vest is just beautifully made and an item I will wear and love as I appreciate the hours that someone put into crafting it!
For me it is a perfect piece of extra warmth without adding the extra bulk of a full sweater.
Vest: thrifted (no label and a hand stitched zipper)
