Turtle neck cable bobbles vest is DONE!

October 21, 2008 , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Finally, I spent some time last night on Erika’s vest, and it’s done!

I am quite glad with it, the turtle neck is a bit too small the circumference, so we need some effort to put it over Erika.😛  But, still manageable though..

Since ERika’s neck is not that long, she doesn’t need “TURTLE NECK” actually, haha, and I leave the turtle neck ‘opened’ without the buttons on. It actually becomes more stylish with the buttons off.

I love this malabrigo silky merino yarn, it’s so light, I used only 1.1 skein for this vest, and the weight is so light! But, it keeps her body warm ! :) 

I think I will get more silky merino yarn in the future for more projects, it’s fun and fast to work with. (Do I have to mention their colors? I think everyone knows:  the semi solid shades are just gorgeous! ) 

 

The next pictures are the ones that I bought from the Creative Festival show:

the HOME SPUN magazines from AUstralia, they are great! (for quilting and crafts) 

the Habu scarf kit :

the Louet Riverstone worsted weight yarn, want to make a felt bag :

And some fabrics:

I can’t wait to see the Frolic next year!!
