Motherboy XXX

Getting ready for the Balboa Country Club's annual Motherboy competition is quite an undertaking, to be sure, and like many such competitions, a good outfit is a critical foundation.




Details:
Pattern: Lilla Koftan, by Petra Orrbeck
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton Ease
Needles: 4.5mm/US7
Start:  August 2
Finish: August 8

An excellent choice by the Bluths, to be sure.  The sweater works well on both boys and girls, and the color is almost universally flattering.   Worked in a washable cotton/poly blend, this will be a breeze to keep clean and lovely.

And now, a look at our favorite Motherboy contestants, Lucille and Byron "Buster" Bluth.



Lucille is the one clinging to the bottle of vodka; Buster is the 30 year old clinging to his mother's pouch.  They make a lovely, lovely pair, dontcha think?

Cute sweater! You always crack me up with that monster set. How many does that make by now?

Ha! This is the third pair. There was Joan and Crawford, and Mother and Norman Bates. I'm sensing a Carrie and Margaret White (from the 1976 classic "Carrie") coming in the future.

I am loving that little sweater! Great color choice, and that unexpected color for the buttons.
