all pieces now finished! ready to block
As most of you know I've been dredding this 'big' project (for me anyway) my Mom's vest out of Patons SWS and size 6 needles. Anyway, Sunday I finished the back
so here's a pic, excuse the fact that it's on my bed (unmaid, shame on me) and that Ihad to use my prenatal vitamin bottle to keep the neck area from rolling. It's unbelievable how fast the front is going. I'm doing it cardigan style and so there's half as many sts as there was for the back...I also got incredibly bored doing just st. stitch and decided to add a cable on each front piece. I'll post a pic when I have one front side done. Hopefully it wont take me another year to complete the front as it did for the back. (Hey I get side tracked just like most of you) Anyway I want to finish it really fast so that I can give it to her for her 53rd bday the end of Oct. So guess I'd better get knitting, both kids are still asleep!

btw I did update my blog, incase anyone's keeping up with that.

actually that's prenatal vitamins, which are a result from taking asprin b/c of the headache, if I hadn't taken the asprin, maybe I wouldn't be pg; jk. The back did cause lots of headache; esp since I didn't know about "The Knitters Handy Book of Patterns" and it took me over 12 hours to convert a vest pattern down to the gauge I needed. That book has patterns for gauges from 3-9 st to the in for all things like, socks, hats, mittens, gloves, tams, scarves, vests, sweaters and they're all from little kid size (2-4) to man's large size. That book was a life saver. I can't wait to finish the vest, almost up to the armhole decreases on the first front side

I thought it was an aspirin bottle, too! Then I read that it's vitamins..
