As I mentioned in the last post, I used some leftover yarn for the baby cardigan. Today I’ll show you the other project that was made with this yarn. It’s a vest made for myself, and it’s a combination of two patterns. For the shape of it, I followed the directions of the Blush pattern by Kessa. The colourwork is from the Fresco colorwork wrap vest by Veronik Avery.

I like how it turned out, but if I were to knit this again, I would add some waist shaping and maybe start with a few less stitches. Now that I’ve worn it a couple of times, the fabric has stretched a bit and I liked it more with some negative ease. Nevertheless I would surely recommend the Blush pattern, one could do so many things with it when adding different colour charts!

Finished the baby cardi today. It was my admirable intention to use up some stash for this project, because -as any knitter- I’m gaining more and more yarn. From an earlier project I had some blue and white Karisma left over, which I thought would be great for this baby shower gift. Long story short: with just half a sleeve left to be knitted, I ran out of wool and had to buy a new skein – so after finishing I ended up with the new blue skein still nearly complete and one white skein untouched. Well, let’s look at it from the bright side, that’s one skein less than I started with…

The pattern is from Garnstudio again. I’m really fond of Scandinavian knitting. Four little deer on the front, four on the back. It’s just cute!
