Sand & Stone Vest
Project: Freestylin' Knit
Start & Finish: 2/6/08 - 2/12/08
Yarn: Caron 1lb (Lace) Yarn & Caron Simply Soft (Heather Grey) Yarn
Needles: US 4
Usage Guesstimate: Less than half of the Lace & half of the Heather Grey


In an attempt to add some variety into my officewear, I decided to knit my own vests with a lil pop and really like the laid back look. I followed Theresa's Picking Up Stitches Technique along the v-neck and armhole and it didn't work out, so I ripped it out and crocheted along the v-neck and armhole. Then I tried it along the bottom and ugggh I couldn't get the vest on....lol. So I had to rip that out and decided it was best to leave it as is. End result.... lovvvvvvvvin' it.
