I have been in the knitting mood lately. I think it's because of all the cold weather we have been having lately. This was a vest that I knit about a year ago when I had just started knitting. I never wore it because the ribbing around the arms was way to big. So I ripped out the stitches and tried it again picking up less stitches around the arm than I did the last time. It's not perfect but it is wearable now.

A few hats I knit for my daughter, son-in-law and grand kids. These were knit in the round so no seaming makes them a quick knit. Now they will be ready for the snow that is coming our way this weekend.

New Simplicity Patterns

Last week Hobby Lobby had their simplicity patterns on sale for .99 cents. So I picked up a few from the new Early Spring catalog.

Simplicity 2455

This one is from the threads collection. I'm not one for wearing dresses but I do like the dress in this one. The jacket is also cute although it is unlined. I much prefer to have a lined jacket I guess I could try to draft a lining.

Simplicity 2453

Bought this one for top D with the ruffles.

Simplicity 2451
I like the shape of the skirt on the model. I think I may have some grey fabric similar to the picture, need to check and see if I have enough fabric.

Simplicity 2447

I like the shorter version of the shirt in this Pattern.

Simplicity 2446

Nice jacket that would look nice dressed up with some pants or dressed down with jeans.

Simplicity 2443

Love the jacket in this Cynthia Rowley pattern.
