I finally finished this sweater vest for Boo. He picked out the color himself, it’s more of a maroon than a red. I think he may have a genetic predisposition towards USC. It’s a pretty simple and therefore kind of boring pattern, which is why it’s taken me something like 9 months to make it. I think I shaped the back of the next incorrectly, but it got hidden in the seam. Have I mentioned that I really hate picking up stitches around a collar? Almost as much as I hate casting off in pattern. But it’s done and it’s cute and both Boo and I are pretty happy with the results.
It’s made from Rowan Wool Cotton and it’s soft and yummy. My next project will be a hat for Bip. I’m hoping to take only a couple of weeks at the most on that one.
