Jamieson's Spindrift kit - She Ewe Knits
3mm & 3.25mm needles
I left off the last repeat on the shoulders to make it shorter, since I'm short & don't like deep v's.
I'm very happy with this vest & love everything about it. I consider it the standard from which all others will be judged. Are you scared? Me too! :D Great job Lorraine!
I'm moving in!
So, we got together to celebrate Christmas & Merry's (Wooly's mom) birthday - same day! Wasn't her mom clever?!
While we were eating, Poohla (Wooly's sister) hold us this sweater and says, "Hey! Check it out! Grandma Marie made this in the 1940's! Can you believe it? Doesn't it look modern?!"
Snotty (Wooly's brother) says, "It looks like something from the '60's"
Me "Boy was she ahead of her time! I love it! I wish I had made it. I want it!"
Ciss (Snotty's daughter) "I'll fight you for it!!!"
Check out those buttons on the sleeve! I asked Ciss what she had on under her sweatshirt... and she gave me a , 'boy is THAT inappropriate' look... I continued with, "Do you have a camisole on? I want to take a photo of you wearing it." She didn't & neither did I, so on the floor!
Poohla showed us her very organized craft room. She kept saying, "I've got so much CRAP!" to which Ciss & I, in unison would reply, "We LOVE crap!" I swear it's like a little craft store with all the neatest stuff. I announced, "I'm moving in!" Ciss said, "Me too! We'll just sleep right here!"

I had the feeling that I needed to go to Village Yarn & Tea, since I hadn't been there in months.
Look what just arrived! Evilla yarn from Estonia! 100% wool in fingering weight with long color changes like Kauni, but cheaper! Approximately 800yds per skein. What am I making? Not sure, but I have Poetry in Stitches & have been wanting to make something from that book.
