And puppy dog tails,
That's what little boys are made of.

Ever have a project that just takes you by surprise? Like all of a sudden it's seemed to have knit itself?Meet the Textured Stripe Vest from Natural Knits for Babies and Moms. It's not quite done - it needs two buttons on the left shoulder. (That's for effect, btw. The edgings make it so that it doesn't actually open.) I got home from a BBQ Saturday night and cast on - on a whim. I had 4 balls of Debbie Bliss Stonewashed Denim Aran that I thought would work, with a basic and minor gauge adjustment. I wondered if my 68m x 4 balls would be enough. Turns out it only took 2 balls to make the 12 month size. I had a whole yard left over. Guess it wasn't quite the stashbuster I was looking for, but boy was it fast!
Off to find some buttons and move this into the FO pile . . .
