Future Vest

Here it is!! My future vest....FIRST piece of clothing!! I'm so excited!! When I learned to knit a little over a year ago the owner of the YS made me buy enough yarn to make a vest and that is what she insisted I start out "practicing" on. I guess I'm a slow learner....I pretty much wore out the section of yarn I was working on, got frustrated because the yarn was WAY more than I wanted to spend for a first project and didn't want to end up with a $100 knitting reject!! INTO the yarn stash it went...matter of fact this is the yarn that started the yarn stash....but that's another story! When I took the knitting class I envisioned giving all my friends beautiful scarves for Christmas.....and while they may not have been anything other than just plain knit stitch I did manage to make and give scarves that first Christmas! Hopefully completing this project will give me the confident to move on to bigger and better things!!!

Yay! I'm so glad you're starting your First Big Project! I've never used Cabana, but I've heard some nice things aobut it. Since you managed to make everyone scarves for your first Christmas, I think that's a positive sign! What pattern are you using?

This pattern is one the YS owner made up for me when I took my kntting class. Just discovered the pattern is written only for the front of the vest! UGH!
