Living in an area that never seems to want to warm up, I felt the need to knit the babe yet another little vest. Because these chilly wanna-be-spring days just scream out for snuggly vests. And when you snag a skein of Madelinetosh Chunky on sale, you feel justified in knitting yet another vest for the kiddo. And since I’m sort of obsessed with the Pickles Plain Vest, I cast on for it immediately, dug out a few fabu buttons (thanks Melissa!) and threw it on the babe before the temperature threatens to rise.
Pattern: Pickles Plain Vest
Yarn: Madelinetosh Chunky
Verdict: Love the (modified) pattern, love the yarn, but I think its the sweet little penguin buttons that really make this vest. I’m really hoping the weather doesn’t suddenly spike to seasonal norms as the babe has got to get some wear out of this vest. But heck, who says a kid can’t sport a woolen vest in 80 degrees? She’s a slave to fashion in training. But I don’t think she minds…
