This is the one!
Change of plans! I found the pattern that I love yesterday. Catriona by Debbie Bliss. I loved all the opinions, but when I saw this vest, I knew it was the pattern I wanted to knit! I was able to cast on yesterday and have about 5 inches done. I was taking these photos and the afghan my grandmother knit for Kevin & I as a wedding present was in the background, so I thought I'd share it with you. It will be our 12 year anniversary in March and I love the afghan more every year. (I love Kev more every year, as well, but this is a knitting blog.) When grandma gave us this afgan I thought it was really pretty, but since I began knitting, I have an appreciation and admiration for each stitch. It is a cherished gift. My grandmother is going to be 90 years old in April and she is still knitting! Imagine all of the projects I can do from now until 90?! I recently asked Grandma for the pattern and she found it! I hope to complete the same afghan myself. I think that would be a very rewarding project! Enjoy your weekend!
