It’s been a while, as always, but I’m still working on the sweater vest. Hubby hurt his knee and had to have surgery so that kept me busy for a bit, but I’m back to work on it. I’m almost finished with the back and once that is done I’ll post a picture of it.
I haven’t been working on much since I’ve been busy with hubby, but I do have an in between project going. I just started work at the kids school, I’ll start back in Aug, and so I now have new things to knit for me so that I look nice!! I started the Lace Cardi from the Spring/ Summer issue of Vogue Knitting. The stitch is very easy to remember, but you really have to pay attention to the pattern, which I didn’t!! I have 5 extra stitches on each side, but that shouldn’t really make much of a difference to the end product.
I’m using Caron Simply Soft in ocean and I love the color!! I think I’m going to like this when it’s done. Now to give Mario some love too.
And I’m still working on this Mario Sweater Vest! I will admit that I took off several months and finished up a few small projects. It felt good to do something that didn’t need a chart and several colors! LOL I but have made that promise to hubby that I would NOT work on anything else until this vest is done!!!!!!
Hubby wants me to make it a V-Neck so I found a pattern by Berroco called Peter Easy. The pattern is simple enough to apply to this sweater, the only bad part about it is that on the back I already started the decreases based on the original pattern. Not really a big deal I only have about 13 rows to take out and I’m doing those while at my sons football practice.
Like I said earlier I’ve made quite a few project since I started the Mario Sweater, but I have taken most of the photo’s with my iPhone and I don’t upload them onto my computer, so I’ll try to find out how to get them onto my blog so you’ll be able to see my other goodies!!
I’ll try not to take another 6 months to post again. I hope to have the front done within the next week or so!! I’m almost to the decrease for the V-neck.
