Anyway, while the measurements of the World Series Vest are technically correct - the underarm to hip length does not take into account Bear's tremendous belly. Anyone need a Christmas gift for a two-year old not shaped like Santa Claus? I've tinkered with the idea of knitting up two more inches of ribbing and attaching it to the bottom, but I'm just not sure yet. Any suggestions?
World Series Vest
Pattern: My own, created with the help of Sweater Wizard 3.0
Yarn: 1 1/2 skeins Araucania Nature Wool Chunky in color #101 Red
Aside from not being long enough to cover Bear's belly, I love it.
I also picked up Big Girl Knits & Mason Dixon Knitting at the library on the way to work yesterday. I'm hoping the short rows tutorial in Big Girl Knits will make it all clear so I can make some progress on my Back to School Vest tonight. Unless this series lasts all 7 games, with about 30 innings per game, I don't think my Cozy V-Neck sweater is going to get started, much less completed. Ah, such delusional thoughts of grandeur when I make my knitting plans.
