Hi there!

Well, I just finished my first knitted article of clothing. And, best of all...my vest actually FITS!! :happydance:

I found the pattern a little tricky; for some reason, the measurements I was supposed to take at certain points often didn't match up. But with advice from my Knitting Help friends and from a nice lady at a local yarn store, I was able to get through it.

You got through it beautifully. Very well done. :thumbsup: I love the color. It should be such great fun to wear. And it fits! Was the flower tricky?

As the Beatles said, "I get by with a little help from my friends."

Yes, the flower was a little difficult, but it was so much prettier than the other pattern I had that I stuck with it. :p It seems like crocheting a flower would be so much easier if I knew how. Maybe some day.

Oh, very nicely done. Enjoy every minute of wearing it and all the admiring compliments!

It's really wonderful! I like the design, and your embellishment! Great work!

WoW! I really like the color and the pattern! Eventually I will give something like that a try!

Wow, that's pretty!! You did a fabulous job!

It really isn't that hard to crochet a flower. I am only 11 and I know how to, I make and sell them for pocket money :) It just takes practice ;)

why would you think it wouldn't fit??

you did a tension square didn't you?

It looks fabulous - well done!

Well, yes, I did gauge swatches...I guess I just wasn't feeling very confident! :) I've heard stories of people who made sweaters and vests and who worked really hard on their project. But when they finished, it didn't fit...so I guess that's what worried me.
