Well, I finished the sweater vest, but I am too embarassed to post pictures of it. It ***almost*** fits my little girl, but I'm going to work a new one up, utilizing my row counter a bit more this time around while also making VERY GOOD USE of the knowledge you all have granted me. Plus, I'm going to make it bigger.

I wish there was a men's knitting group here in KC.

I will post some pics of some of my favorite scarf projects later when I can find my camera. Heh.

Why is that I have more WIPs than FOs! Here is my latest FO, the Undulating Rib Sock from the Favorite Socks book by Interweave. The yarn, a washable merino wool from That Spinning Place website, is in shades of pale green, chocolate, lavender and violet....called Mood Swings. Have a look at the attached image.

Cabled Sweater Vest

So far, so...mediocre. LOL It told me to cast on some stitches at the beginning of two rows, and since I had no clue how to cast on when you've already got the yarn on the other needle, I just tried to M1s in a row. I'm pretty sure that's not the same thing given the completely different look it has than the picture in the book. Heh. The cable pattern on this sweater is exceedingly confusing, too, and I have jacked up in a couple of spots there, as well, but I started this sweater vest as more of a tester and not so much a be-all, end-all of sweater vests for dogs.

Despite its mis-shapenness and the lopsided nature of my increases (I think I stopped one row too early), I'm proud of it thus far if for no other reason than I'm venturing an attempt at something that has seemed very daunting until now. Actually, it still feels daunting, but less so. Heh. I'll post pics when I finish!
