Here’s another Boogie Vest from Knitty.
I knit this with the intention of foisting it upon one of my cousins. I knit this according to her boobies (the 36" size), but it looks like it’s going to be rather large. She’s pretty skinny but this might even fit me :doh: . Dunno why it came out so big, my gauge was correct (well clearly not–but I thought it was :teehee: ).
I finished the crochet edging around the neck, but I still need to tackle the arm holes.
It’s a big shapeless and blobby–if I knit another vest it definitely won’t be in a bulky weight. The cables are fun though!
The wonkiness of my tension really screams at me in the pics, but it looks pretty nice in real life. Also–my seaming leaves a lot to be desired .
(Yes those are a pair of handknit socks peeking out at you there!)
The yarn, btw, is Sirdar something or other–Classic maybe? It’s DK-ish weight and I knit two strands together throughout to get gauge. I might like to do a very similar vest and recalculate for DK weight yarn instead.
This yarn used to be a Picovoli:
I didn’t like it and frogged it to make this. I’m not thrilled with this either–maybe I need to look into other yarns :eyebrow: .
This is all leading up to my ultimate end game–a WEARABLE sweater for myself! I figure I probably have enough time to go and lose those 50lbs I keep talking about before I’m ready…Hee! :roflhard:
Thanks for looking…and you get a cookie if read my babbling this far!
