Pink Bliss Vest


This project was worked up using Patons Pale Pink Baby Sport yarn... and its oohhh so soft... I stopped at knit-a-way last week and couldn't bring myself to leave the shop without purchasing yarn. With my purchase in hand and my daughter quizzically looking at me... I left the store feeling euphoric. The design was inspired by a sweater in Vogue Knitting - Fall 2006 issue. There is a model sporting a beautiful Raspberry colored sweater with a plunging neck. I must have looked at the pic several times that night... trying to visualize how I could incorporate the plunging neck into a crochet design. By Friday morning my brain was buzzing as I prepared for work and by the time I was situated comfortably in the car on my way to work.. it hit me.... BAM!!!... Do a vest with a plunging neck, and as dh and I happily listened to Curtis & Kuby on the radio... I started the foundation chain. My fingers were like a pianist.... whizzing through several rows... the 3"s I had crocheted were like a composition for an orchestra and then it was over... it was time to step into the office and leave my precious wip in the bag. TGIF.. b/c I knew what was in store... a late nite of crocheting... and with the weekend at hand I dared myself to complete this piece and sure enough... finito
