FO: Milo Vest (long time coming)
I started this vest a long time ago. I'm talking almost two years ago. And I finally pulled it from the bottom of my knitting basket to finish it up. I was on a knitting high from finishing my Vitamin D sweater - which is perfect in almost every way - and I just wanted to keep on knitting. [I'll post photos soon, but need to get someone else to take them while I wear the sweater.]
I was too tired mentally, and creatively, to think about starting a new project. But there, at the bottom of the basket was this long-neglected vest. Now is the time I thought. And I went for it.
Now that it is done it's a blessing it took me so long to finish it. It's quite big. Almost too big for my older girls, but with spring/summer here I should be able to tuck it away until the fall without too much protest from them. And then, in four months time, it might fit just a little bit better.
The yarn was a gift to me from my Mom - she picked it up during her travels in Ireland. The yarn is called Blizzard and was made for Tivoli Spinners (manufactured in Turkey), Ireland's leading distributor of yarn.
