A friend gave me a Chix with Stix gift certificate for my birthday. I’ve been pretty busy, so I hadn’t spent it. However, over Labor Day weekend, I treated myself to some new yarn for a quick, instant gratification project: Boogie from Knitty. I am not a fan of wool (itchy itchy…), so I bought some Misti Alpaca Chunky in a deep, chocolaty brown. It’s knitting up lovelier and softer than expected. I’m currently about half way done with the back (it’s amazing what size 10 needles and one 2 hour movie can help me accomplish).
Since I’m in the hospital every day now, that means I have to dress up every day. This vest should be a tidy addition to all the button down shirts I’ve been wearing. I’m hoping to finish it over my break if not sooner.
