Aaaand it’s finally finished!
(That hat she’s wearing? I also made it! Back in December, when I was still a n00b. A bigger n00b than I am now, I mean.)
I’m so glad that the vest actually turned out well. I was worried that it would be too big or too long or too awkward or … Well, you get the idea. However, it came out well! Of course, I made some mistakes here and there but they’re barely noticeable to the untrained eye. Besides, this is how you learn, right? Now I know what to do and what not to do the next time I make this vest. (And I will be making it again. It’s a nice vest!)
Next up on my agenda: Hey, Teach! cardigan. I’m nervous because it’s knit in pieces and then seamed together (and we remember how much I disliked seaming just the 3″ inches on the vest, right?) but it’s a really nice cardigan so I will power through it. Here’s what I have so far:
That’s the beginning of the back panel. Once that’s finished, there are the two front panels and the two sleeves. (Man, that’s a lot of pieces!) I racked my brain trying to figure out which cardigan to make for my boyfriend’s mother before I came across this one. I hope she likes it! (I’m aiming to have it finished by her birthday, April 1. I think I have plenty of time! What’s more nerve-wracking is the prospect of knitting a full-length sleeved cardigan for Alex by his birthday, April 13. Ack!)
