Back to Lacevember

The Celtic Vest is almost done. I finished the knitting last night and now I just have to sew the shoulder seams and weave in ends. I am going to go to The Knitting Basket after work today to show it to Farida. The knitting with 2 yarns was interesting. I don't necessarily think it was needed with the colourway of this particular yarn. If I did the vest again, and I used a similar colour, I wouldn't bother with it.

Now that the knitting is done on this I can get back to my Lacevember knitting YAY!! I just started repeat 4 of chart B. Once this repeat is done I will only have 16 repeats of this chart left (for this side of the scarf). I'm beginning to think I should have made it wider. I decided to make this into a scarf instead of a stole because I know I don't have enough for a stole. Now I wonder if I should have added another repeat section because I don't what to have too much yarn left over when this is done. It's amazing how far this yarn seems to go.

I would like to make a special mention to everyone in our SnB. In January it will be 2 years since we started getting together. It's hard to believe it has been that long already. I can't tell you how much I look forward to each meeting. These are the best bunch of women you could want to meet. We'll have to start discussing what we can do in January to celebrate the 2 year mark. Thank you Maggie, Natalie, Chelle, and Kimberly. Angie I hope you manage to join us sometime soon. It's been too long since we've seen you. Michelle, thank you for joining us on Tuesday. I hope you will become a regular at our gatherings. Karen, where are you? Enjoying that wonderful grandchild no doubt. I hope we will get to see you soon.

    The vest is gorgeous, but what a pain that pattern was! Once you get going it's obvious how to knit, but I'm always disappointed in the sloppy way Fleece Artist patterns are written. Particularly since they do market their yarn in kits, you'd think the patterns would be easier to decipher. I can imagine a beginner getting so frustrated.

    I do like it, though. I love the trend toward vests lately. I just don't quite have the figure for them, unfortunately.

    Aww shucks Rochelle...I'm blushing.

    Two years huh...gotta think of something special to do to celebrate. In some ways I feel we should knit scarves for the Starbucks staff members who put up with us every other Tuesday!

    The vest is lovely BTW.
