vested interest

I was ready to give up on myself and knitting, but then I decided I just needed an attainable goal. So, in came the vest (woohoo! No sleeves! And I DO love vests) and chunky yarn (fat needles=quick knittin’).

I used my knitting software (I have Knitware, which I bought several years ago) and leftover Rowan Cork. I didn’t think I’d have enough of the green to do a solid-colored vest, so I added some random stripes. At first I thought it was looking too, I don’t know, 70s, but I like the way it turned out, and it keeps my core warm. I can’t say this project has jumpstarted my knitting again, but I suppose I can always keep knitting chunky vests!

    VERY cute! I love that shade of green. When it gets a little warmer it’ll be cute with a white t-shirt under it.

    The vest looks great, congratulations! I love Cork! I made a sweater with it before but I think I knitted it too loose.
    and speaking of biscuits, today my friend told me that his mom goes crazy for April Fool’s Day, and one year when he and his siblings were kids, she put cotton balls in the biscuits. Cotton balls!

    WHOA! I just figured out what the uniqlock is!!!!!! Is Uniqlo coming to Portland? I’m going on Saturday in HK! I love Uniqlo so much… Some stuff is boring, but some stuff is great! I’ve gotten some of my favorite basics there, and I love the designer capsules.

    I love it. It’s very cute on you. I need to make more basic items for my wardrobe. I keep trying for these sweaters that look much better blocking than they do on.
