A funny thing happened on my bike ride last week. I rode into town on a gorgeous spring day and accidentally bought this yarn…..I don’t know how it happened!
Even though it was a particularly warm day, we are back to chilly, wet March days and I think another vest is needed for my wardrobe. I’ve had this pattern for a while and, even though it looks like a fall vest, decided I needed to knit it.
The yarn is lusciously soft (why that matters for a vest, I don’t know…) but I have cast on and am knitting away.
Marie, who designed the lovely Pressed Flowers Carry-All, has introduced a pattern series in celebration of the women in your life and the first pattern is Blackberry Buckle. It is knit in the lovely Misti Alpaca which is so soft! I love the wine cork toggles! I think Marie’s stories will be as interesting as her patterns.
My lace project is languishing a bit because I haven’t had much couch time, but I have a bunch of BBC dramas lined up, so perhaps I will forge ahead.
