Sometimes the bumps along the road to knitting are just purls.

One down..one to go
Remember a Tale of Two Sweaters? I completed my Indian Vest this past week and it fits! There's a story behind this thing. A few years ago, my daughter Jen gave me a Ball & Skein Shop gift certificate for my birthday with the understanding that my yarn purchase had to be used for ME. So, I got Galway Paint knitting worsted and chose a vest from Catherine Ham's book " 25 Gorgeous Sweaters". I knitted a small, after all, I am a sz. 36, right? I looked like a variegated sausage in the finished product and squirreled it away in a bag, returning to my safer projects. Well, after awhile, I tinked the whole thing and tried it again in a size medium.
It looked ok when finished...and then I blocked it. I am now a believer in miracles. What a difference a blocking makes!
On to the Feb. Ladies sweater///Hey. I didn't specify what year. :)
