Determined!

I was 7" from the hem on this and the more I knit, the more it felt like I was slogging through a sweater for Jabba the Hutt.
Sure enough, when I laid it out as flat as I could under the arms, it was about 10" too big.
I knew it!
This yarn is cursed. 
I spun it years ago (Jacob wool) but everything I have ever knit out of it gets ripped out!
(3 sweaters and now a vest!)
But this time, I think I have it!
It is the stitch count and measurements of the green vest I made last month that turned out so well
with a few tweaks that will make it unique!
I am 9" up from the ribbing and into the cable and even beginning the waist shaping!
It's great to knit with confidence this time!

  1. You are so patient! 3 sweater trys and now a vest. GOOD for you. Inspiring. It is so good to find the right match because something led you to that yarn in the beginning?

  3. Better to frog than to end up with a finished garment you hate!
    Fingers crossed it works out this time!

Hat Distraction!

 I needed a hat for my Seattle son-winter temperatures have hit hard there  and since he works outside, he needed some insulation!   ...
