I made this vest for the musical handyman last winter using wool yarn and he liked it. Well... long story short it ended up in my laundry and yep, felted. I wanted to make him another one using cotton thinking it would be great for summer evenings in So Cal and of course alleviating any more felting accidents. Even though it took me a while to finish, it really is a quick and easy knit. I have to say I am a bit disappointed though. This yarn was really soft and a dream to work with, but oh my gosh is it super droopy and stretches like crazy. Have you ever knit something up and found the yarn is totally wrong for the project? Well I am not sure but maybe once washed a few times it will grow on him?
On another note I got started my summer quilt today and am really loving the colors. The top is coming together quickly and I cant wait to see it completed.
Happy Tuesday I hope you have a great week!
