Little Argyll Vest
Argyll Slip Over
Pattern: Baby Cashmerino 2 book
Size: 6-9 months
Started: 13th June
Finished: 14th June
Yarn: Heirloom Pixie wool 4 ply and scraps of Sirdar for the argyll.
I did not even use 1 ball of the blue Pixie yarn for this vest. There is about a quarter of the ball left. That is allright for only $3.73 a ball. So this vest only cost about $4.00 to knit up, plus some buttons when I find some. It was a very easy knit, apart from that argyll part (I detest doing them) but I have figured out that if I keep practising I may get better. This will go into the baby gift box of presents, for a newborn in the future.
I did not get any time yesterday to finish the back of Paul's jumper so that will be on the agenda today. After the party at McDonald's (which I ended up with a slight headache) noise induced I think, we did grocery shopping and popped into see my parents. Paul is still home with a virus and a touch of gastro so he will be home tomorrow as well, and then the kids are on school holidays. Well I am off to search for another fill in project for tonight, which hopefully will knit up quickly. Maybe I should finish the back of the hooded baby jumper I started a little while ago. Hope you all have a lovely day.
