…Joining Ginny’s YarnAlong, sharing what I’m knitting
My favorite YarnAlongs are the ones where I have a finished knit to share. (This is the gift that I was working on last Wednesday.) I was knitting away to get this little vest done in time for our trip to visit family last week. I was sewing on the button as we drove up the driveway to the farm and told Jeff and Bracken that I couldn’t go in the house with them until I’d finished sewing on the button, but I did get the vest finished just in the nick of time.
I knit this vest for my nephew Gabe’s first birthday. We celebrated his birthday a little early while we were down there, along with Bracken’s. I’ve adored the Harold vest pattern for a long time (it’s so cute!) and as I thought about what I wanted to knit for him for his birthday, I kept getting an image of that vest in my head. I snapped a few pictures of it on some rocks in the afternoon light when I finished it, but it was so much more fun taking pictures of the vest on Gabe.
Details: Jeff made the button for me in reclaimed western red cedar. I love the way that wood pops with the brown yarn. I found the yarn at the Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival, by Wolf Ridge Icelandics from Montana.
How about you? Knitting? Reading?
