Garter Rib Vest...and a Plea!
This was done in Cotton Fleece in the colorway 'putty', which is really a nice aran-yarn color. I love how this looks, and will probably make another one since I have a nice stash of cotton fleece and really like how it feels. I even wove in all the ends and did all the armhole and neckline shaping, and after I took this picture I blocked it. This was a pattern that I found...where....maybe in the Webs catalogue or some other catalogue and I thought it looked great. I didn't get gauge but I faked it (yes, I live for the danger of knitting!)
I feel like quite the accomplished knitter, I must tell you.
So, here is my Plea. Please keep an eye out for this little button. If you're out and about at your local craft store and see these buttons...they're made by JHB, and the number on the back is 90014 1/2 inch....anyway, if you find them, please buy them for me and I promise I'll reimburse you, along with an extra special gift.
The gardens are very late in blooming, but I have dozens of tulips about ready to greet the world. Here are two of them.
