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!!!
