FO: "Ardys Vest"
The Ardys Vest designer offered everyone and anyone a FREE PATTERN on her birthday celebration weekend! A Rav knitting buddy of mine alerted me about this Special back in early January.

Anyway, I was very intrigued by this simple little design. The only seaming was the shoulders, the 3-needle bindoff seam over 13 stitches. Very easy.

I combined two sizes together, a larger size for the lower body, and a smaller size for the upper body. The vest is a perfect fit.





Here are my Ravelry folder notes.

Fun, huh? And I'd need some short rows too. You got just the right combination there.

As usual your work is gorgeous. I envy your spead in getting things done. I'm probably never going to be a fast knitter, but at least I seem to be getting better at different stitches and reading patterns.
Taking a class at my LYS this next week on reading charts. We will be making a cowl out of 6 ply sock yarn. Can't wait to get started!!
