FO: Eyelet Vest

beck1

Eyelet Vest from Special Knits by Debbie Bliss
2 balls of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino
Size 6-12m

This is the 2nd time I have made this pattern. The first one I made for M1 last summer. It is a lovely pattern - sometimes the simple ones just turn out so cute. I didn't make any mods, if I had more yarn I might have lengthened a little but I was pretty close to using 2 entire balls. The baby cashmerino was a dream to knit with, the type of yarn that makes your knitting look nice without much effort on your behalf!

I made this for Beck (of Rapunzel fame) for her new baby girl who is due next month. Since Beck knew I was going to make this and chose the yarn colour herself when we went yarn shopping together, I guess it's Ok I blog this as it was never going to be a surprise anyway lol. Hope you like it Beck and look forward to meeting your new daughter sometime soon.

And that folks is my last startitis project all finished. Yay. And Wicked just needs a pocket and a twisty rib hem and thats all done too!! September is for finishing!!

So pretty! And I like the idea that September is for finishing; a change of season is the perfect time to start new projects guilt-free!

It's the 'back to school' feeling you get in September. Makes you get a move on! :D

Beck will love the vest. A beautifully simple pattern in white cashmerino. What's not to love?
