Getting vested!

I've been doing a lot of knitting since getting my cast off on Tuesday. Truth be told, I was knitting even with it on but it was very slow going. I couldn't use my thumb so I was using my index and middle finger to hold the right needle and wrap the yarn! Crazy, I am... I know. The pictures aren't great (had to set the focus on the banister, and not myself...) but it at least shows that the vest fits. It'll be perfect post-block! I'm so glad. And boy is it warm - I'm sweating after running back and forth from the stairs to the tripod. That's a great thing but means I need to finish it soon - before Spring really hits and I no longer need it!

So overall, my attempt at knitting a piece of clothing seems to be going pretty well. I'm a little nervous about seaming but we'll see how it goes. I'm heading out to my auntie's tonight to help her make a copy of my black clutch. Since she's one of my "Master Knitting" aunties she'll be able to answer any questions I have with my vest too.

Hope you all have a great weekend! It's supposed to be very cool here tomorrow but warming up next week. Spring's coming - I can feel it.
