Sunday was a really nice day, too, and Dale suggested we take Dixie for a walk in the woods. I readily agreed – especially when I realized it would be a great chance to photograph the vest I just finished for Dale.
The fit is perfect and it’s just right for this sort of weather when it’s warm but not warm enough to go without some sort of jacket/sweater.
The pattern is Diamonds for Him from Knitty and the yarn is Wild Apple Hill Farm yarn that I bought at Rhinebeck last year. It knit up quickly and the diamond pattern kept it from getting boring.
The directions are a little vague on the decreases for the shoulder and v-neck but I figured it out and am really pleased with it.
I even told Dale I’d make him another one so you know it’s got to be a winner.
I think you can tell by the smiles – on Dale and Dixie – that he loves it, too.
