Blue Vest for Oldest Son
Last week my oldest son mentioned that he has outgrown his favorite sweater vest. Sure enough, his recent growth spurt has made the old vest too short in the waist. He asked if I could knit something like it for him. Well, of course I could! I found a cool vintage pattern at http://www.hjsstudio.com/rc2vest.html which is a World War two pattern. It looked very easy, so I started right in, using a yarn I bought from Ebay that is a wool blend with flecks of colors throughout it. I like how it is knitting up, and the pattern is very basic. I won't have it finished for his birthday tomorrow, but definitely by Christmas!
