Couldn't Stand It
Okay, y'all. I just couldn't stand to not use all of the beautiful Noro Taiyo yarn I ordered for this project. So... I added the sleeves called for in the pattern.
Unfortunately, I STILL have a skein and a good part of a second one left. My brain is whirring on what I could do to use all of this beautiful yarn.... a hat... a scarf... add length to the jacket...
The good news is that I LOVE. THIS. JACKET!! I really liked it as a vest, but I love it even more as designed! So glad I couldn't stand the waste of yarn. My Beloved laughed and shook his head saying, "Oh, my frugal bride." I'm not sure I could consider my yarn addiction frugal. Ha! But, I'm not a waster of the yarn goodness. ;)
(Knitaddict, I added what I could about the underarm decreases on my Ravelry page here.)
I was so sad when our LYS closed it's doors (for a second time). But, I have to say, I've become quite fond of receiving these beautiful packages in the mail! It's like Christmas every. single. time!
I'm excited and nervous... I'm seriously considering swatching after my last experience with the Flat Rib Popover Vest. Considering.
Hoping I can resist the urge to just take off without the SWATCH! Ha!
