~Roughly seven years ago, I made the Vestimenti bulky vest for Z. from Minnies by Jil Eaton. It was quite easy to knit, and he wore it all the time. I thought I would make a cotton version for C.C. to wear since it seems we are having a cold, cold winter (maybe I am just tolerating it less). Really any excuse to knit for the little ones is all it takes.
~The vest is created with size 10 needles and cotton yarn with vintage buttons. Z. told me the buttons resemble butterscotch candy, due to their color and shine. Oh yes, I love how they think in terms of 'candy'!
~I decided to leave off the crocheted swirls this time around. Maybe I will add crocheted initials on yet?
~ On occasion, C.C has been seen trying to taste the butterscotch buttons. Ho hum...
~I originally used Reynolds Lopi (100% wool) for the project seven years ago, and it was a tad too rough feeling. C.C. still wears this on REALLY cold days. It is great to see him wear something that was made years ago when I was a new mom (and new knitter), it brings back so many memories..
