On The Needles: Now With 100% More Knitting!!
I guess I sort of accidentally knit a stealth project. Just never had time to blog it - what with the kitchen and all. But now the kids are back in school, so the knitting? It is ON!
I finished up this sweet little Vestee for my sister's baby (due this December).
Color is sort of washed out on that pic - here's a close up:
The Pattern: Vestee from Knitty
Yarn: Zitron Life Style 4 skeins
Needles: Addi Lace Circs size 4
Time to Knit: A few days
What I Learned: I can do anything! Really, it's amazing what knitting one sweater the Elizabeth Zimmerman way can do for your knitting confidence. I found this yarn, liked it and decided to use it. I didn't even care that it wasn't the weight of yarn called for in the pattern. Just said to myself - I'll just "unvent" the pattern. Easy to do since it provides a schematic. Swatched to find my gauge, reworked the numbers, and Presto! - I had a baby sweater. Whew! The knitting freedom makes me almost giddy!
Now I am knitting another one - this time in blues and greys and with short sleeves. I'm already on the collar. Man - baby stuff is fast!
