Got Milk?


Finally I actually have some knitting to share! I was getting pretty frustrated having this knitting blog but not being able to show what I am actually working on....so I decided that I won't keep everything a secret (just some)!
So this is totally my design and yes it's called Got Milk? ...because?...it is made from Vickie Howell's Craft yarn which has some milk fiber in it! The yarn is a blend of the milk fiber and organic cotton and is very, very soft and lovely...I can highly recommend it for those that prefer non-wool yarns.
This design is a cropped vest, knit from the bottom up ( then separating for back and front at armholes) -with capped sleeves and a folded scoop neck worked with some short row shaping .
Seeing as I won't be using this as a submission I plan to write up the pattern and make it available here.

(By the way it was stinking hot when my husband was taking these pictures hence why I have a slight frown on my brow)!


Other news....I'm on Ravelry now!!! It's a very cool site and I'm very excited to be there........however it's another reason to be online! (my poor kids will be totally neglected...lucky that David cooks dinner every night)!

Gudrun, the vest is adorable and I love how the green matches so well with your hair. It is frustrating to knit and knit and not be able to post. I totally understand! :)

This is a really nice little top G and like Connie says, it really suits you. It's hard to imagine how hot it must be for you right now and how hard it must have been to stay cool in that photo! You are looking fab!
