my plan for December...

Hi all: I should just note as well how much I've enjoyed visiting here and seeing everyone's firsts - which all look like professional efforts from where I sit!!! We are a talented bunch, aren't we?! ;)

For my December "first" I propose to knit in brioche stitch style for the first time. I just started the Men's Brioche Rib Vest by Erika Alexander (from The Best of Interweave Knits - also in the Autumn 2003 Interweave Knits mag - cannot find a completed photo on line!!):

Size: 45" (ack! so much knitting!). It's for JJ, my partner in crime. The yarn is Knitpicks CotLin (70% cotton, 30% linen - highly recommended) I'm also thinking of making myself a brioche-style sweater of some sort in December.

I've even bought buttons for the vest (which is a cardigan). Here is a picture of them:

(I know they look like UFOs - the space kind, not the knitting kind!). My first for January 2008 should be "taking a decent photograph of anything related to knitting, really!) :-)


Knit and fall back in it said...

I believe JJ will look quite dashing in that blue vest.

Great start on the vest - best of luck to you! The colour is really beautiful ;0)
