At Last!


Matt's vest is finally completed. He's not a big sweater guy and asked if I would make him a vest. He's happy with is so, that makes me happy. It was great TV knitting (is anyone watching Lipstick Jungle or Fringe...i know totally opposite programs). Details are below. Off to work on the mystery sock that Through the Loops is hosting.

The studious pose!

The vest looks great, love the tweedy yarn too. Wish my son would wear vests but he is 14 so no chance of that. Perhaps I could try and persuade my nephews too.

Love the tweed. And I'm impressed your boys wear pink. Geez, I can't even get Liv to wear it.

Great vest, Jane!

Jane said...

Thanks everyone for your kind comments.

Kerstin-the wearing of the pink started at the hockey rink where all the "tough" players used pink tape on their sticks...it has grown from there. My husband wears a pink button down quite a bit so that may play into it to.

OK. Have to stop chuckling about Leslie's front being 17 inches wide! I didn't know bad (knitting) things EVER happened to her! Heh heh heh (gloats evil me...) Anyway. Your vest is awesome! I make go copy for my son, even though now I've probably jinxed myself into 32 inch wide front...
