First off I would like to thank the owner of WEBS for trying to make things right about the vest pattern. She offered to refund my money for the yarn and the pattern, but since the total was under 20.00, I told her that it was ok. The pattern designer was the one that told me the pattern was not proofread or test knit, and well, after knitting it, I believe the pattern designer. At least WEBS was, and is willing to do what is right. All I want is a corrected pattern.
I decided that I have to get over my fear of garments. I have never knit one. I have started them, just never finished (and that is not entirely my fault!). I thought that I would start with a small vest for James. Knitting for someone with a 19.5 chest sounds good to me!
I am using the Blank Canvas Vest pattern, and the new yarn from Crystal Palace, Merino 5. I am really loving this yarn. It is so soft and it shows the stitch patterns nicely. I plan on making one for each of the kids.
Now my SP11 asked me what I use to take my WIP's in when I leave the house. Not too long ago I bought a Posey Sock Sack from Nana Sadie Rose. I LOVE it so much. It's only for small projects, but it works for a sock on the go or a small vest ;-) Someday I hope to order a larger bag from her.
Now for my big news....... Jimmy Beans Wool is my newest retailer for KnitWit Momma! They placed a HUGE order from me, and I am very excited to add them to my list of retail stores!
I'm off to make more markers!
