Hello! What a great day to cast-on the Anna Vest. The book is From Farm to Needle, and I'm super excited! I really needed this cast-on I should say, due to the fact that I have been working all winter on smaller projects like hats, socks and simple shawls and craving something a little more involved. So what better than a knit a-long to meet that need. The yarn is Thirteen Mile and I'd describe it as very soft, a little unrefined, and yes, straight from the farm. But oh, that makes it all the better when the needles turn it into something cozy to wear. Wouldn't you agree?
My two high school boys are home today for Presidents Day, so I'm squeezing this typing in as well as any knitting, but I love when they are home and we will venture out to see a movie this afternoon. I'm wishing you a lovely day too and if you are working, I hope you find time to pamper yourself when you get home. Jeannine:)
