folie vest

 Ooooooh Loop Stitch!
I had so much fun working the Loop Stitch for the very first time.
And Libby and I had so much fun shooting the photos of the Folie Vest.
Libby says it reminds her of a fur vest, only cooler.
That's what I'm talkin bout!
So simple.
So quick.
So fun.
Oh, and guess what?  Last weekend, Libby asked if she could knit a row on Maine Squeeze.  I calmly handed her my knitting.  I didn't want her to see the excitement inside me.  And then, after row 4, she asked if we could get her a project.  She wants to make a poncho.
Be still my heart.

I love this company.  Their projects come kitted including, pattern, yarn and needles.  Everything you need from start to finish.

Pattern:  Folie Vest Kit

Oh!  And come visit next week.  I'll be hosting a giveaway for anything on We Are Knitters site valued up to $100.00.  SO exciting.  And if you just can't wait to get a project going, you can order and enter promo code AWAKFRIEND to receive a 15% discount on any items.

Have a beautiful weekend, friends!

  1. Is there anything miss Libby can't wear with panache? My son asked me out of the blue this week if I would teach him to knit. My heart skipped a beat too.

    Just beautiful...and the vest is lovely, also! Can't believe Libby is so grown up...she's just gorgeous! I'm jealous about her wanting to knit...my daughter tried one scarf and hated the entire process. But her seven year old daughter (and my granddaughter) wants to learn and I've been teaching her! It's so much fun...and we're sewing together, too! We're living proof that needlework of any kind skips every other generation (an old wives' tale!)...it certainly is true in my family for several generations!
