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.

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.
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.
Bought this one for top D with the ruffles.
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.
