A Vest!



It seems that towards the end of every project I become convinced that it will never end. That indeed, I will be knitting it forever. This vest was no different.

But finished it is and Boar loves it! I need a bit of time and distance before I love it — I will love it but for now I am just thrilled that it is finished. I may run a bit of elastic thread through the bottom since the ribbing isn’t snugging up at all. The jury is still out on that one.

In a stunning turn of events, I have not one but two finished things. The other however is top secret! I have given Cara a couple of clues ….. it is cotton, it is green and I had to count rows and I had to rip it out a bunch of times.  ;)

  1. Handsome – both! At least what is available to see of the model. Nicely done – but if you had just waited a week and wrapped it with a big red bow you’d have saved yourself the Valentine’s gift!

  2. Congratulations!! I’m glad Boar likes his vest… I think you will, too, in time. I’d wait a bit on the elastic — it looks fine from here.

    YAY!! You finally made it with that blasted baby project.
    ; )

  3. I kind of like that the bottom edge doesn’t pull in. Those cables are so cool. The trickiest thing in knitting is deciding what to knit, and this one is a winner. Boar looks like a Rowan model!
