An Unusual Situation

Yesterday, I finished David's Vest. It's done, without even one single seam, has been bathed, and is now blocking.

More details and photos at the weekend, when David will be home in the daylight for pictures.

Last night, I also finished David's 6ply Opal socks.

How lucky is he? Socks and a vest, all done.

However, this leaves me in a most unusual situation. I have nothing on the needles.


But I do have plans to rectify that very, very soon. Here's a hint.

(And there's more than one project in there)

Oh you are a tease. Well, the easy one first (I think...) - the pink yarn is for socks? As for the other yarns, I am stumped!

The vest looks fabulous! Must show husby, maybe he'll let me make a vest for him, finally!

Well done! I'm not all that far behind you - nearly at the armholes, so still a little way. I'll be picking your brains.

Are you making somethign for Em?

I love that vest Donna. Thought the Jet would be too thick, but it looks great!

David's vest looks great and it didnt take too long for you to knit up. Love the socks, and I am assuming the next few projects will be socks too.

Nice vest and even nicer that is has no seams!! Great socks!! I think you will be making some socks??

If I ever make another garment I will keep your vest in mind. Love the fact that there are no seams.
Well, you did tell us you like three OTN, so I see 1 or 2 socks and something for Em.

The vest and socks look great.

Hmmm, I'm guessing something is planned for Em. Looks like her colors to me.

Lucky David, two items in the same week.

Gee, is the pink multi color for Em? It's is very nice along with the other yarn.

Funny! I had nothing on the needles last night, except a laceweight scarf that is NEVER going to happen! I fixed that problem quick smart.

Lovely vest and socks. Honestly, you must stop spoiling that man!!

NOTHING on the needles??? Nothing? Have the authorities been called?

I know David is proud of his vest and socks! Great job.

Davids vest and socks both look great and I say there is a garment in the pink rowan classic and then a pair of socks in the multi and a shawl in the solid pink/coral. Thats my guess.

Wow, it's like Christmas for David! The vest looks awesome, can't wait to see him modeling it. Looks like there will be a pair of socks in your future. Hmm...and a scarf maybe? Did you notice that your yarns are all in the pink/rose family?

He must be really happy. 2 handknits at one go! :D I'm guessing there will be socks (lace, or both), scarf and a garment next!

The vest is gorgeous & I really love the center cable & the way it winds itself round the neck. Knitting vest is the way to go as there's no seaming. I just love vests & they are perfect for the not so cold winter here.
