I started a vest for myself. I shouldn’t have, but I did.
At guild on Tuesday I won a mini raffle we did, and got a 2012/2013 Bergere de France magazine. There are some GORGEOUS patterns in there, but I was taken by 2 in particular. One of them I’m not sure what yarn to use, but the other…well…it’s a fun fur vest. I know.
But it’s really cute, and worse comes to worst I’m always cold at home so…. Yeah. Moving on…
The body is worked on 8mm needles so it’s a fast knit. It’s kinda a shrug/vest hybrid, and on Wednesday night I cast on. I finished the back ribbing and the first few rows of the body. And then I brought it to work with me on Thursday so I could photocopy the pattern out of the magazine to make it easier to work on.
Now, I shouldn’t have started this project on Wed. I had realized just that morning that Christmas might be in 2 weeks, but the last day of daycare/kindergarten is next week, which means I’m running out of time to do the holiday teachers’ gifts which I haven’t started yet. I *should* have started those. But I didn’t.
Which makes it only fitting that I forgot the project at work last night, and then today both boys woke up with fevers, meaning I had to keep them home, and be home all day, and NOT be able to work on the vest.
Which means that in about 5 minutes I’ll be starting the holiday teachers’ gifts, all due next week. 🙂
