Dr. G's Memory Vest Finished!

Here's another item I just finished... What a beautiful story Kirsten tells about her father - check out the pattern link, donate to help Alzheimer’s and Dementia research along a bit, and she’ll send the pattern to you as well! I bought lots of the yarn on sale at elann.com - I am sure I have too much… but better too much than not enough… (it’s from my stash!)

It was wonderful to knit... and my first cable project...

I haven't blocked it yet

I haven't blocked it yet (believe it or not) - :) - and it was really easy - (it's my first "finished" cabled thing) so that says something about how easy it is...

buy the pattern and have it in your library - it's EASY to follow and the money goes to a great cause!
