I have a plan. I've made a schedule. I've wound yarn. I am on track for my Christmas knitting this year.
I am feeling so confident that I cast on the most adorable vest. I usually have so many projects lined up that new patterns get relegated to the bottom of the queue. I look at them from time to time and wonder what yarn I will use in what colour.
This issue of Knitty came at the right time. The pattern is cute and I love vests. It is smaller than a sweater and doesn't seem like a big undertaking. I had the yarn and buttons to match. It was meant to be! I've named her Jest (J's Vest).
The only problem is I keep stopping to admire the pretty diamond pattern and the soft drape of my yarn. I bought some Knit Picks City Tweed DK quite a while ago intending to make it into a little cardigan but other things came up and the yarn just didn't seem right. I'm so glad I waited and T is, too, since I sent her half the yarn I purchased so she can make a vest of her own.
I can't wait to wear it!
