Been awhile...

It's been awhile since I've had knitting progress to showcase here.... I did actually knit a darling little baby sweater back in May. It was a Ribbed Baby Jacket by Debbie Bliss in a dark navy blue for a pretend-nephew across the ocean. Alas, I finished it the night before I left for Colorado and didn't manage any pictures before I left for my flight at 4AM.

This here is the "Man's Vest" from CEY Summer book 1. All I need are some buttons and it's ready for a FO shot.

I rather predictably chose the Four Seasons yarn in the exact color as the sample. I feel the need to break out of my box, but on the other hand, brown is a good color for me, and it will coordinate with many things in my closet.
And then there's socks. There's always socks. These are the "Canada" socks from Nancy Bush's Knitting on the Road made with odds and ends left over from other socks. I felt the need for some colorwork, and these certainly fit the bill.
Wool sock weather will be upon us soon enough. Better start stocking up! Get it?

You can never knock brown. It is my go-to color, it always works. The vest is looking great. So get sewing some buttons!
