Vest Status

Today's update on the vest--

One thing I've found strange about this pattern is that the shaping around the arm opening is uneven. It starts on one row for the one side and then starts on the next row for the other side. I read the pattern several times and I didn't misread it. Should be interesting to see the finished object. So far this is an easy pattern and I think if there are any problems making it, then the collar maybe a bit more challenging. I'll just have to wait and see. (Pattern info: Kim Biddix, “Lace-Collared Vest,” Crochet! July 2007, 38-40, 89-90.)

For attractive lips,
Speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes,
Seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure,
Share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair,
Let a child run his or her fingers
through it once a day.
For poise,
Walk with the knowledge you'll
never walk alone.
--Audrey Hepburn


  1. I've had patterns do that too and it didn't seem to make any difference. I hope you find it the same for you. It's going to be lovely -- I just know it.

  2. Beautiful quote. You are making quick progress on your vest, it looks great so far. Heather

  3. Thank you Bev and Heather. I get so inspired looking at the beautiful things that you both make.
