First I wish to tell you all how much I appreciate this forum! It is really great to see what you are all knitting, and Amy’s videos are simply great ( Thank you Amy! ). You really kept me starting knitting anew and it is such fun and relaxing (it became my antidote to stress.)
Anyway, I have been rather sleepy these days, not posting anything – but I have kept work up! As it is really cold here (and rainy) I figured out to move from scarfs to producing vests (because they have no wicked-to-knit-sleeves). Before giving one to my boyfriend, I wanted to try one for me. It rather looks like an experiment with patterns, but I still like it. There is no real collar to it, because I like there rolls of purl turning out when you just leave ha hole for the head. It is plain grey knits and from top down it has weird stripes (next time I will use enlongated stich there) and the last third of it is a lace pattern (looks like fishnet). I had no model to go but made an experiment with patterns. So it turned out quite ok with me.
Any suggestions which patterns I could use on a vest for my boyfriend? (I thought about two colours, stitching his Chinese name in front, but I am not sure whether this will look a little childish…) You are all so creative, I would really appreciate your ideas on this.
Thanks - and we are nearly two weeks from christmas!!! :cheering:
