My Finished Go Vest + My Next Knitting Project

I finished my Go Vest (free pattern from Pickles):



While it's definitely not perfect, I think it is wearable. I like the color and the chunky knit. If you look closely, you may notice that I left the sleeves off from the original pattern - I ran out of yarn. Planning the amount of yarn I will need is not my strong suit!

And now I've started The Carnaby Skirt from Knitty:



My progress so far:

  1. Oh my goodness, that vest is so pretty and that skirt is AWESOME!!! I started knitting a couple of years ago and did pretty well, but I just fell off the wagon. I love sewing so much that I can't seem to make the two hobbies work together. I wish I could figure out how to manage my time.

    1. I'm thinking it could be made longer - my legs also wouldn't go with it!

    2. The pattern actually gives instructions for making it longer.

    1. I'm definitely a beginning knitter. This pattern wasn't hard except for figuring out the brioche stitch but I found a you tube video that showed pretty clearly how to do it.

  6. That skirt looks awesome and I love the colour you've chosen for it - its way better than the original.
