Vest on the Way
Ok i have started my Vest. It's made from 8 ply pure wool. I am worried about it, it doesn't feel soft. So i measured myself and had a omg moment. Nothing like a tape measure to boost your confidence. Cast on my stitches and knitted about a inch and "SNAP". Yep broke a needle (Grumble Grumble)and had to start again. So I ran out and brought circular needles. Which i am finding that they take the weight better and are easy to use when you don't have a lot of arm room. I cast on using size four mm needles ( just to give it a bit of give around my girlish curves and not make it feel like i am wearing a rubber band) and did size rows of rib, Changed to 3.75 mm and continued in stocking stitch. Doing ten rows of green , two rows of purple, Two rows of green, two rows of purple, repeat. Any way there is pictures on my blog.
