What did I do today, you ask? Well let me show you…

I have been saying over & over how I would just love to be able to whip out some fast, useful projects. Well here is one.

I found a bunch of Lion Brand Kool Wool in my stash that I had purchased  to make the boys sweaters. Well, they needed new vests for Christmas Eve church so what better way to kill 2 birds with one stone than to make the vests using stash yarn!

I used a simple 4×1 rib pattern with 4 stitch cables across the front of the vest. I used my Denise Needle set size 10.5’s for the bottom inch, collar and sleeve edgings and size 11’s for the body. I worked it in the round, then separated front and back to work the crew neck collar.

I finished Trevor’s with a total of about 4 hours worth of work. I really didn’t expect it to go that fast! I cast on Tyler’s in the perfect olive green color and have about an inch of the ribbing done so far. Tomorrow it will be done in the evening I am sure.

There you have it, a child’s cabled vest! yippee~skippee
