10.21.12 - after two years, I finally got the zipper sewn in!! Man I’m a dork. Love this vest, glad it’s finally done.

12.02.10 - I have a confession to make: I’m scared to sew the zipper in. The vest is blocked, seamed, and ready to go, and I have a zipper… but I’m scared.

10.18.10 - All done knitting! This was a really fun knit, and pretty quick (don’t let the dates fool you, I’m easily distracted and always work on more than one project at a time). Now I just need a zipper.

10.16.10 - Just finished the left front! I still haven’t had to dip into the second skein, eesh. I’ll have to use some for the ribbing around the sleeve, but not much. I have NO idea what I’m going to do with the second skein of yarn.

SQUEEE! I’m almost done :D I’m not looking forward to seaming haha.

10.03.10 - Still just cruising along. The pattern is easy to follow. I’m done with the back and shaping the shoulder for the right front. I’m about to block the back, and will probably start the left front tonight. I hope to be finished next week :D

09.14.10 - So far, so good. My cabled bottom looks pretty awesome, if I may say so myself :) The yarn seems like it’ll wear well, but I’ll have to put a band-aid on my finger cause it’s going to tear me up if I don’t.
