It’s Vestvember!

vestvember!

Early last week, my friend Christy posted a picture of her outfit that day, in which she wore her Bloom vest. It got into my head something awful and next thing I knew I was on Ravelry searching “vest.” Then Bertha tweeted something about looking at/considering Honeycomb. No, *I* am looking at/considering Honeycomb, I said! Clearly, vests had gotten into her head too.

The brick down here in Bay Ridge is different. It’s darker, or redder, or arranged differently—I can’t quite put my finger on it. But it’s distinctive and really pretty. And when I fell in love with this wall, I knew immediately I needed to knit something and take my FO shots in front of it. And now. The yarn I bought at Webs was the perfect color, and the geometry of Norah Gaughan’s Swirled Pentagon Pullover was perfect.

olympic gold!

I started out really strong right off the gun—but I rounded that first turn and hit something of a wall. (More like: I was on vacation at the beach and had other things to do besides knitting. But when I realized yesterday that the Olympics are actually over tomorrow, I hit my second wind and quickly finished seaming it up.

it’s a february kind of month

february baby!

Erm, wait, it IS February. But it seems that the February Sweater bug is making the rounds–do people feel more inspired to knit it during the second month of the year, or is this a fluke? Because Annie just finished hers (we can’t believe she finished before me. Not that I think all knitting is a race, but well, I wanted to win), and Stacey is teasing us with her completed one. These are just two of the blogs that I read; I didn’t dare check Ravelry.
