Okay, today’s post is a quicky for a couple of reasons.
First, I finished this vest last year and don’t really remember alot about it at this point and second, my real job insisted on taking my time and attention today. I represent kids in Court and sometimes you have to just jump in and work the phones and do some investigating and schmooze and threaten and persuade and, if none of that works run into court and beg the judge to force everyone else to bend to your will. I did everything but run into court today – and some of it worked but not all so tomorrow I will be running into court – wearing my lawyer costume.
I guess that also explains why I knit this particular vest. When I meet with kids I don’t dress in a lawyer suit – what 6 year old is going to feel relaxed with that. So I usually wear my good blue jeans (no holes) and a sweater or vest. When I saw this particular pattern it just looked like it would work – it is casual and comfy.
It is the Prudence Vest pattern by Berroco and it is a free pattern on their website.
I had previously posted pictures as I was working on the back of this vest – here is how it ended up.
The negative is the yarn – which has since been discontinued by Berroco. It doesn’t really hold its shape and when it gets wet it loses all structure and has to be completely reblocked.
But it’s comfy, and mom-like and perfect for my life. So I am happy with it.
Okay, I better get back to work on my second knee sock – I’m on the gusset now. I would love to be able to show you that as a project report sometime in 2014. Hoping your projects are moving faster than mine.
Onward and Upward.
