Here it is, just in time for Christmas... my latest sweater! What?! Doesn't everybody want a sleeveless pink sweater to wear for the holidays? When I started this 2 months ago, I was making it to wear under a short sleeve jacket for fall. Well, fall passed me by quickly and I didn't like it under the jacket after all. I really love it, though perhaps won't get much of a chance to wear it for a few months or so. But you never know. I'm living in south Texas and there have been years I've worn shorts on Christmas. Okay, quit blabbing and show the pictures already:
This is the 'Perfect Periwinkle Turtleneck Tube Vest' from Fitted Knits. I used 6 balls of Universal Yarn's Panda 100% Bamboo yarn, and I used every bit of that. This would have been done way sooner were it not for my troubles with lifted increases. I knitted and frogged the front and back several times, and then went to the local yarn store for help. I was doing it correctly, but for some reason was getting huge holes only one one side. Very frustrating! I ended up doing M1L and M1R instead of the lifted increases. Then all that ribbing on the bottom got super boring. I finally just powered through it to get it finished.
I'm SO proud (relieved) of how well it fits!
I did start a new knitting project, Knit and Tonic's Fab-Classic, in that brown yarn from this sweater vest. However, with my slow rate of completing projects, I guess you can expect to see that in two months. Darn my pokeyness!
