Mother's Day vest

So, I'm playing around with images on my Blogger template and have a lot of experimenting left to do with the header and layout -- so this might look like a work in progress until I figure it out. But I did want to post this photo of the vest I made earlier this month for Dan's mother for Mother's Day.

This was really a joy to knit. I used a cotton-acrylic blend called Tatamy Tweed, a great texture for summer wear. My friends at the yarn shop used the same yarn for some great-looking summer placemats, and I conveniently bought enough extra so I'd be able to do the same.

If you enjoyed the photos of Mary's quilt in the last post, check out the comment section - and thanks so much, Mary, for checking in! Great to hear from you, and we're all still wishing you the very best!

On another note, Knittymuggins tagged me to post seven random things about myself...which I will do later this week, as soon as I can think of that many...

What a nice gift. The yarn shows the stitch pattern well. Good work!
