a sweet vest pattern that is knitted on straight needles (easy) but has no seams to sew up afterwards (also easy). I managed to mis-count my rows, however, so that I ended up with a buttonhole on each side of the yoke. The yarn is too chunky to just shove a small button through a gap somewhere, so I puzzled and puzzled over what to do. I'm quite pleased with my solution of a kilt pin through the yoke.
I knit this vest on regular-length knitting needles and constantly had to push push push to get the volume of stitches to stay on the needles. So I bought a new, extra-long pair of needles, because, yes, I love this red vest so much that I have started another. This one is a cloudy blue-grey which should make Phoebe's blue eyes even bluer.
For both vests, I bought two 90-yard skeins of Loops & Threads Cozy Wool which is 50% acrylic, 50% wool and comes cheap from Michael's with coupons.
