yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, 2 skeins
needles: US 5 and US 7 Clover bamboo 16" circs and DPNs
notes:My favorite touch is the ribbed cable border at the hem. I'm not thrilled with the neckline, but this project had been languishing far too long, and I didn't have it in me to re-work the details. It should be cute and cozy on a little guy!
More baby showers are on the horizon, so expect a few wee projects as part of my April Finishing Frenzy. I seamed and blocked a little hooded cardigan early this morning!
- Already made it to a Cubs game this season! A friend from my knitting circle had extra tickets to a luxury box with a great view. Oooo la la, now that's the way to watch the game. Plus the Cubs actually won. :-)
- The new Knitty is up! The Corinne cardigan is quite nice.
- Have you seen the show Party Down? It's quite the hoot, especially the second season. A motley crew of aspiring actors and writers pay the bills by working for a catering company. Each episode centers around a catered event, and some of them can be rather off color, so consider yourself forewarned if you have delicate sensibilities. You can stream it on Netflix.
- FYI: Cascade Eco Wool is on sale at Webs this month. I ordered enough for the Dude Sweater, ostensibly for Paul (but that doesn't mean a certain knitter can't borrow it from time to time).
That is a very cute vest! Hmm. How are you managing to finish the blanket with that kitty hogging it? :D
Darling little vest!
the vest is adorable -- and i love party down. bummer that it got canceled. jane lynch was especially funny...
I love the cable rib edging on your vest!
I love Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran yarn it's so snuggley and soft. I have three balls in my stash in nice shades of purple and dusky pink which I'm trying to find some inspiration for.
Lovely vest! If you changed the v-neck to a boat neck you would have an option for a girl, too.
And I did not need to know that Cascade 220 was on sale right now. I've got visions of a giant bear claw blanket dancing in my head. Stash diet, stash diet, stash diet.
Of course, by the time I would get around to knitting that thing, I'm sure it would be on sale again.
oooh, I'm so jealous - a Cubs game already! awesome! Can't wait to see more of your finished things - you are on a roll!
That is a very cute little vest! Good luck with the finishing ... and I might just have to start watching Party Down. I'd been putting it off ...
The X,O cables are such a great idea!
Finishing Frenzy is a great term and idea. But can a slow knitter like me call her knitting a frenzy?
Thanks for the heads up on Webs Cascade Eco; I went there right after reading your blog and ordered for a sweater and a blanket!
Awesome little vest! And I have my eye on Corinne, too:)
I'm knitting a sweater in Eco Wool right now & loving it. I sense future stash acquisition. :)
