My Gilmore Vest is Finished!

Since being bitten by the knitting bug again, I have done little else. All my other hobbies have sadly fallen by the way-side! The wonderful thing about knitting is that I can create items for me. I have a vision of creating a new image for myself this year, and with the help of my new hobby, I hope to be able to achieve this.

The first step in achieving this goal, was to finish my Gilmore vest. In a record time of 10 days!! When I used to knit in the past it would take me ages to get anything finished. This time around I am more motivated!

I was so pleased to have a few rainy miserable days last week, and I was able to wear my vest. It really is a wonderful feeling being able to wear something that I have created. I hope this vest will only be the first of many items to come! By the way, this pattern is available for free over at Ravelry, the most awesome site for knitters!

A special thanks to my very handsome photographer. Bryce, aged 7. Didn't he do a good job!

Have a great week everyone!

Hi love - what a lovely vest! It fits beautifully and really looks professional. You are really getting very good. I might have to commission you for some winter woolies this year! Talk soon and well done to the "photographer"!
Love you
