blocking is magic

Although it's a crappy picture (lighting is terrible today, plus the spot I usually block in is not really the best for photo ops), you can probably get a much better picture of how the vest I showed you the other day is turning out.

Moral of the story: block your knits, kids.

a brief and true report of the back of a vest

It's been a long time, I know. Insert usual excuses here + lots of travel/new job/moving related ones too.

Above you will (hopefully) see a picture of the back of a vest that I have been working on for far too long. I started it almost one month ago and this is as far as I've gotten. I haven't even made it to the arm-hole shaping yet. Again, I blame travel/new job/moving type things for my knit-inertia. Knitnertia?

One thing I did finish in this last month, however, is this:


So that's something, I guess?!

Expect more vest pics soon. I want to have it done in the next 2 weeks AND I have tons of babies to knit for. At least 3 that I know of will be born in the next month...
