here is a project from the back log of the past year! i made a little vest for my nephew’s 2nd birthday. my sister really likes for him to be sharply dressed, and matching, so i thought i would make her a little vest for him. i also hate knitting sleeves!!!
yarn colors are so hard to photograph, and this yarn is a bit more teal in real life. but it was made from a really soft cotton/wool blend that was a superwash yarn, made by spud and chloe. the pattern was the julian vest, via ravelry. it was a pretty quick knit, although i did have a little trouble with some of the center v’s, as i just couldn’t get them to come out right, so i modified that part a bit.
but it came out really nice and fit him perfectly!! i really liked the little details of the buttons on the shoulders. i have a few long done knitting projects to post. hopefully it will encourage me to finish the sweater that i have been making patrick as his birthday gift last year!!! maybe for his birthday this year i will finish it.
as always, raveled here.
i am in full speed christmas make presents mode. this was a cut i had originally made for the lovely lady that gave birth to me almost 31 years ago, but decided that it didn’t stand alone quite well enough. it is from an old folk tale called the goblin and the grocer. i have been thinking as of late that i want to do a large series that retell old folktales. so this was a good study, but i think more panels are necessary for the full retelling. but this little image is about 9″x12″ and is up for sale if anyone falls in love with it, just email me about the price. in more exciting news my sister had a baby!!! i am now auntie stacey. ezra james lewis was born last thursday, weighing in at 6 lbs. 8 oz. i saw a picture, and he definitely looks like a newborn alright. all newborns sort of look like human piglets in a hat. but i can tell he will be a looker, after all he is half malasky. if i do not post again until after the holidays, have happy holidays!!!! oh by the way if you are looking for some last minute gifts my friend eve makes the dreamiest leather bags i have ever seen, check her out her etsy shop.
