I finished this little vest quite a few weeks back. It took me about three weeks to sit down and stitch a few little stitches to attach the velvet ribbon. I'm not really sure why, but I have a feeling many other crafters suffer from that habit of procrastinating those last few rows or stitches.
I borrowed the delightful, Lovely Knits for Little Girls from the local library. I would definitely describe most of the patterns as being in the advanced category, and while very pretty to look at, they do make me feel a little too nervous to attempt at this stage. Maybe one day.
The one part I did find a little challenging was the crochet border. Most of you will know that I have absolutely no experience with crochet, so I was a little apprehensive about this part. Luckily I found some clear instructions in an old crochet book Introduction to Crochet, a Golden Hands volume I'd picked up at a garage sale a few years ago. I knew it would come in handy one day.
I'm pleased that although made of wool, it's small and cropped, so provides a little extra warmth during this unpredictable Spring, while not being too warm.
I think she likes it.
