My vest is finally finished. Someone mentioned to me that it looks like Cotton Candy. Well, I am really glad that I finally completed it. It is my first FO for the year that I can say is all MINE!!! How sweet it is!!!
Check it out!!! I like the way it fits. It is a little roomy in the waist, because I did not do any waist shaping, but that is just fine. Just in case an after-dinner belly pouch develops, I have some knitted insurance. LOL!!
So, I am on to my next project. A very sweet and loving friend of mine was looking for someone to crochet a hat and scarf set for her. The catch is, she wants to wear it before it gets too hot to wear it. This woman, as sweet as she is, has put me up to a Crochet challenge that I gladly accepted. She really is a good friend and deserves to get what she wants, so I can see her smile more. The pattern is from a Vogue Knitting magazine from Winter 2004/2005. Thank goodness for the holiday weekend. I am trying to at least complete the hat by Easter Sunday. We will see how I do. I have to use a size 3/D (3.25mm) crochet hook. Wish me luck!!
The yarn is Cherry Tree Hill's Glitter Alpaca in the Old Rose colorway. It feels soooooo soft, and the color is gogeous. These pictures really do it no justice at all. So, here are two Glitter cakes!!
