Oz Vest*

Project: Oz Vest
Yarn: Plymouth Select Worsted Merino Superwash in someshade of blue that I can't seem to remember.

*I'm not sure what it was about this project, but to say it was hell is truly an understatement. It looks so easy and quick, and maybe it is, but for me, it was freakin' miserable. I had to restart the damn thing about 4 times because I kept messing it up and getting off the pattern repetition. I managed to sew the vest together all crooked and twisted. It took quite a bit of time to figure out how to get it undone due to my super skills of weaving ends in. There was a lot of hard work that went into this sweater. And even some blood, sweat and tears. And quite a bit of profanity. But this fu$#^&*% sweater is done. Thank God.

Lol. I hope the small child who will wear this vest doesn't read your blog. They'll be scarred for life. ;-)

I got that book for Christmas and since I have about 4 babies to knit for, I've been perusing as I decide what my baby gift project of the year will be...guess it's not the vest.

Oh Meg, you continue to make me laugh. I'm glad you finished the little f*&^%$ and that you powered through the hard times. You can't win 'em all. (and for what it's worth -- I think it's pretty frickin' cute)
