Realizing, as I did last weekend, that at times I have trouble seeing right from left, led me to start a new project. A simple little project. One I can do while watching the 6 o'clock news and still get it right. Or is that left?
This one is a baby vest. At the KW Knitters Fair, one of the items we had on display, at the Cabin Fever Clearance Booth, was this little piece.
Once home I purchased the pattern from Patternfish and yesterday cast on. Of course, I didn't have any suitable aran weight yarn, so I chose some leftover sock yarn. The pattern sizes range from new born size to two-years. Adhering to the old adage - 'Finer yarn? Knit a larger size.' I cast on for the one-year size hoping to get a vest that will fit a new born. My very mathematical, formulatic reasoning for choosing to knit the one-year size rather than the two-year size was because the cast on for the one-year size was less than 100 stitches. I was feeling lazy.
