Completed Vest on Recipient

The vest is complete and delivered to my father. Here he is at lunch showing it off:

I didn’t block it for two reasons. 1. It didn’t look like it needed it. 2. I wanted to give it to him today and it wouldn’t have been dry. Upon wearing, however, I realized it probably did need blocking, at least on the armholes and neck. My wonderful mother will have to do it for me. I am very pleased at the outcome – the vest fits him perfectly and I’m very glad I put the cable in, even though it caused me some fits. I think it looks great on him.

After lunch we went by to pick up a gift my mom made for Joe and me for our bedroom. I grant you it is not knitting, but check out this quilt:

It is going to look fabulous on our bed – we have a great red dresser and red curtains. She just has to finish the binding and then we get it, hopefully next week sometime. She is very sick (so sick in fact she won’t touch the baby, which is almost impossible for her), so we’ll give her a little leeway.

This afternoon I’m going to do some knitting. Joe just got home from work and we opened a very fancy bottle of wine. It’s a good way to start the new year.
