Pebble vest

I finished my vest! I actually finished it 10 days ago, but it has taken me a little while to get it up here. I really enjoyed this knit. It was simple and satisfying and I love the yarn which was a bargain. I am going to knit another, but try and size it up so that it will last a little longer.

Ravelry link to my project here, the free pattern is Pebble by Nikol Lohr, The Thrifty Knitter. I used the DK yarn Sirdar Escape in colour 0187. I used just under a 50g skein.

Not sure who this is for yet. There are babies due to pop out all over the place so I'm sure it will find a good home, and then I'll be able to have the satisfaction of seeing this on somebody.

And to end, here are some pics of the kids enjoying carnival on Friday night. We had a great time, the power stayed on, and we were able to cook our lasagna (which was yum!).

Whoever received the vest is a lucky little one.
Love your Kitchen Poetry. You have a lovely kitchen! (I wish mine was like that)

lovely vest
I've never knit anything for little people, but get to start after christmas as I recently found out my friend is expecting her first, and this may well make it on to my knit list!

oh dear, don't they look adorable? The vest looks good.So satisfying to finish something like that. I can't knit to save my life but I'm planning to crochet the worlds longest scarf for someone.
