But I'm finally ready to post another FO.
I finished Vestish (ravelry link) what feels like a dogs age ago, but I was debating pockets and avoiding weaving in the ends.
Last week, I decided that I wanted to call it done and pulled it out of the craft closet, wove in the ends and voila! I wore it the next day (because I was too lazy to block it... knowing it would be another 2 months or more before that would happen).
I love the vest, especially because it makes it easier for me to wear my white tops to work. I love the idea of the white button down shirt, but my large back tattoo is very dark and often shows through the light fabric. A vest feels like the best option. Of course, with this vest, I felt like a librarian. All I needed were the stereotypical clunky boat shoes, my hair in a bun, and a severe pencil or A-line skirt.
I am still working on finishing up a few other things before tackling the beautiful cardigan from the latest VK. That unfortunately includes the baby set, still. It is just a very uninspiring project for someone who loves cables and lace. I need to finish it, because one of my friends waants to trade lessons in something (probably jamming/canning) in exchange for knitting the Susie Hoodie from More Big Girl Knits.
The hoodie is exactly the type of project I love to do. It has big bold cables and a bit of shaping, so I don't fall asleep with all of the stockinette. The finished garment has very few, if any, seams, and is just a relatively easy piece. I like the yoke style garments. I have finished more of them than any other, and they even get worn.
Sadly, the hoodie is too big for me. The smallest size is about 9 inches larger than my bust measurement, which is way more fabric than is needed for the overlap. I will happily make it for my friend when I can pin her down for her measurements and select the size and the yarn she wants.
