This post is a little late because I wanted to have a picture of my new finished object. It has been so long since I’ve actually finished a knit that I really need to celebrate this. It could be a long time before the next one at the rate I’m going! Thankfully I’ve almost two months to finish my Happy Out mitts for the Knit a Long.
This little vest is the 6-month size of a new design by Yvonne of the Dublin Dye Company. I’ve knit a lot of her patterns and love them all. It’s a test knit and usually I complete these in a matter of days. But between the house move, new jobs, new semester and new baby on the way, my poor brain was too overloaded to knit anything. I definitely couldn’t manage reading a pattern as well! Still I persevered, chipping away row by row and I’m so happy with how it has turned out. It’s such a sweet simple design with a few lovely details. And the yarn pooled just perfectly to make it striped! It’s knit in Malabrigo sock, one of my favourite yarns, in one of my favourite colourways – Solis. I’ve knit two shawls and some baby hats with this colour way before and love it.
Now to get started on my Knitmas project!
