sweater vest done.

Apparently I finished the sweater vest. Overall it’s acceptable, considering it’s my first large non-hat, non-bag project. The crocheted edge was a pain in the butt. I’m not sure I do it correctly. How hard can it be? It’s crochet for Pete’s sake. The straps are a tad on the narrow side and they keep curling, so I hope a good blocking will fix that.  The gauge is way off, I’m sure, but I couldn’t be bothered to start over.  For next time I’ll try a little harder.  There’s a bit of variation in the color that is quite nice.  I’m glad I dyed it instead of buying a solid color.  My only quibble with it… I think it makes me look chunky.

  1. Hi Gwen, You look great…don’t forget, the camera always adds at least ten pounds, according to height, and your knitting is quite beautiful, as well. Keep up the good work…I am having a lot of fun reading through your web site. Happy Birthday!!!! Judy
