You're right! I can wear amber. :)
The only change I made was I didn't increase after the rib. I just continued on with 288 stitches. My Ransom vest had 280 stitches, and fit perfectly.
And I didn't do the back & forth knitting, just continued steeking on top.
The great thing about vests is... no sleeves! (quick knit) And that it shows off the fair isle pattern (because there's no button band.) And perfect for our mild weather.
I love this vest! It looks great with my camel coat & my dark brown coat.
All dressed up & nowhere to go! :D
Back to the Beret
It covers my ears and doesn't feel like it's going to pop off.
Thanks to Halfmaennchen/Monika, who took a photo wearing hers & posted it in Ravelry for me. (I still like hers better!)
Wooly told me I shouldn't post/Ravel my failures...
I told him, "This is real life knitting dude! Not everything turns out perfect every time! Besides, others can learn from my mistakes..."
So, if the pattern says to block it over a plate... let the beret totally dry over the plate before you pull it off! Trust the pattern!
We got Chart B which included a rose pattern. Smoothie is pointing at it with his nose.
It's not easy being the Princess of Miyamojo.
You don't want to miss out on The Ball & turn into a pumpkin, so get your Twisted Traditions patterns today! Before you have to pay outrageous prices because they're out of print. (You KNOW what I'm talking about!! and YES I'm bitter about it!! Especially now that I'm in Ravelry & able to see what I'm missing!! YARN & BOOKS!!)
Until next week... may all your dreams come true. :)
