Quick & Easy!

I started the Rosebud Vest on Thursday and was blocking it by Friday night. I sewed it up Saturday and wore it to church on Sunday! Of course I had some help along the way. First, we had a knitting afternoon at Panera, which got me started. Second, my husband went to a bachelor party on Friday night. Before he went, we stopped at Blockbuster and I rented 3 movies. It was great! Tons of knitting time!

The yarn I used was Abundance. It is a classic worsted weight fiber that is so easy to work with. The pattern calls for Sonoma, but we thought it would be fun to see if Abundance would work - and it did. I also have more than enough left over to make a hat or something to go with it. Maybe a small felted purse.
