I’m about halfway done with the Lolita vest!
I started this on Friday. It’s going pretty fast! I have a new skirt that I think it’d be perfect with, and I have an event tomorrow night that I’d like to wear it to, but I doubt I’ll get the vest done (and blocked) in time for tomorrow night. 🙁 I have another event Friday night I could wear it to, but I probably won’t have it done by then either. Oh well.
Anyhow – it’s knit side to side – that cut-out section is one of the armholes and the first notch will get seamed for the neck and shoulder seam. It’ll make more sense when I get the rest done – I’ll show you how it gets seamed up. I’m loving the yarn – Rowan Revive – a 100% recycled yarn of silk and cotton and viscose. It’s a bit rough to work with, but I think it’ll soften up nicely once it’s blocked.
The color is kind of a pale greyish-blue, very pretty. A very ‘me’ color. 🙂
Who knows, maybe I’ll have a FO for you Friday! Just maybe.
