Vest for Hubby

Here's a picture of my serenity sock. The first sock is about 60% done and hopefully the pair will get completed by Christmas and maybe will be a nice gift for someone!

Last week I had picked up the yarn for the vest I wanted to make for dear hubby and did some work on it last weekend. It is being made with Comfort from Berroco Yarns. 50% Super Fine Nylon and 50% Super Fine Acrylic with size 8 and 9 Needles. 210 yards per skein. It is a super simple pattern from Carol Sulcoski which was on Here's the link to the pattern :
This is the first time I'm posting a link and hope it works.

Almost Complete

Woohoo, my sweater is almost done. Finished the back, front and a sleeve. The second sleeve is about 1/4 done. And my first attempt at block the parts has worked out so far. I'm so excited about this project.

A simultaneous project I'm working on is a pair of socks. The yarn is called Serenity from Deborah Norville Colletion from Premier Yarns. It is 50% superwash merino wool, 25% bamboo and 25% nylon. I'm just doing a simple ribbed sock. Almost got to the part of turning the heel on the first sock.

My next project is going to be knitting a vest for my dear hubby. Just bought the material from Monterey Yarn last week where Julie was so helpful in finding just the right type that I needed. It's going to be a combination of black and white.
