Take Two

Remember these? Some longies I knitted for Burl a few months ago. They turned out way too big, so I ripped them out and knitted this vest. But alas, the vest doesn't fit him either. I loved the pattern, but will make some adjustments the next time I knit it. Like make the neck opening much bigger for by boy's giant head. And shorten the length a little. And make the waist the same diameter as the body.

Yarn this nice needs to be worn. Although I finished this vest a couple months ago, it's just been sitting in a drawer. It's time to give it new life. I'm not sure what I'll be knitting with it next, but I'll get it right one of these days.

Beautiful colours, hope you are able to find the perfect project.

I love that you are OK with making something, and remaking it until it's right. I mess up, and I have such a bad habit of glossing it over, not accepting the fact that it can be frogged and re-done, a new life. Each, a learning experience.

I picked up two adorable knitting books this weekend, and I look forward to some serious learning curves ahead.

How many skeins of that yarn did you need for the longies? You said they were too big--do you think they'd eventually fit him? It's beautiful yarn.

It is always so frustrating when all that time is spent making something and it doesn't fit correctly. I've had that happen so many times.
