It’s been a year since I last posted about my knitting, not because I haven’t done any, but because my travel posts have taken precedence. I actually haven’t stopped knitting, but I have mainly been sticking to only a few patterns. This one in particular was the pattern I took on my travels. It’s a good one to take since it’s done on circular needles from start to finish , and is very straight forward (little chance of lost needles, stitch markers or dropped stitches). Luckily, I had a lot of friends and families with toddlers, and so had plenty of little people to knit for – I’ve made 5 vests so far, of which these two are a selection.
We returned from Europe to a Sydney winter. While travelling, I’d taken a liking to wearing fingerless gloves, and I thought I would have a go at knitting one when I got home using this pattern.
It was so successful that I knitted a few more for my friends too.
