It's Neighbourly, not Neighborly

Remember this post? I spoke of a sweater vest I was making called Neighborly. Well folks, it's finally finished.

Before sleeves

Took long enough, huh? First it was the fact that I couldn't find 5mm circular bamboo needles. (I only work with bamboo since metal and plastic needles make a noise that turns my stomach. I know, I'm such a diva.) Then it was the yarn I chose for the collar. It was to soft/flimsy to stand up. And that was after blocking it twice. So I decided to use seed stitch instead of buying new yarn.

I wanted to take pictures outside since it would look cool,
but that would just be mean so I took the pictures inside.

Once I got started, I was like a woman on fire! I sat and knitted while chips were present. I sat and knitted while people came to visit. I sat and knitted while Izzie cried for me to play instead. The last one is only half true. You can totally knit while playing hide and seek with a little one.
I also ran out of the grey yarn but I like how it turned out. Now I need a new project. Any suggestions?


  1. The sweater is stunning! You are so talented!

  2. Thanks Jen, I am loving your loving of my knitting.

    Thanks Emily Jane! Nice to meet you, and knitting is super easy once you get the hang of it. Just tying loops with sticks.
