I finally finished it!
I really do not know why it took me so long to complete this vest for Ellie. I was off to a fantastic start and then stalled out somehow. A few rows here and there until I finally acknowledged that holidays are around the corner, cold is here now and I really needed to get this off the needles and onto the kiddo. It turned out beautifully, if I do say so myself. The main colour is a cashmere merino blend, so it feels dreamy too. But what does the kiddo think?
"Oh, Mama! I love it. I just do!"
Not that you'd know it from her photo shoot...
Ravelry tells me this is actually my 7th Neighborly vest. Perhaps it's time I work on a new pattern. I have been a bit knitting-ADD this week, scanning Ravelry for ideas in my spare moments. I'm very intrigued by these mitts I spied today. I've never tried knitting mittens before, but they look very approachable.
Have you completed any satisfying projects recently?
Are you planning handmades for the holidays?
I admit I feel a bit overwhelmed in advance. I sat down today and wrote out a list for gifting, and then I had the urge to hide under my bed until January (ok, not really but...). I do feel so tremendously blessed to have good friends with whom I can share, but doing so all at the same time...whew!
