A Vest in July

What would I do without everyone at the shop to knit for me! Well... I shouldn't say that. I do PLENTY of knitting, I just have a tendency not to ever finish anything. It's a bad habit. I'm trying to break it. It's not going to be easy though.

So, I present to you a beautiful vest made by the wonderful Kersti out of Mountain Colors, "Twizzle". Ugh. So lovely! I wish you could touch it through the screen of your computer! No joke.
Softest.
Stuff.
Ever.

Don't believe me?
Fibre content= 85% merino, 15% silk.
Now do you believe me?
Thought so.

That's me doing my best "knitted vest model" pose.
Not bad eh? The hand on the hip thing?


That's me sort of giving up.

Let's just look at the vest instead.
Shall we?

Pattern- Now and Then Cozy Vest (by Mountain Colors)
Yarn- 3 skeins of Mountain Color Twizzle (with muchos left over)
Size- Medium
Needle Size- uhhhh... I'm not sure. I didn't knit it. I just blogged it.

What a lovely vest! Although I couldn't touch it through the computer screen, I can imagine how soft it is after reading the label!
Wow, I read the rest of the blog and I had missed out a lot of good stuff at Mary's! Dawn......I will try to drop by next week. :P
Keep up the good work!!
