Work in Progress

Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

The simple wrap vest has turned into a bit of a marathon but the end is near.

I've learnt a lot about crochet ..... my ability to read or (misread) a pattern .... how hard it is to unravel crochet ..... how easy it is to drop a stitch every row, and just how quickly wool breaks when you pull it !!! Sigh.
Oh yes, dear reader, it's been fun.
(Memo to self: remember craft is relaxing and you're doing something for yourself.)

But on the bright side, after thinking halfway through that the vest wouldn't fit me, it turns out it will - so that's a bonus! Just a few more rows then I'll weave the ends in and have a lovely hand made vest to keep me warm.

It's not perfect, some of the row ends are a bit wonky, it's a bit short at the back ....but it's all my own work and I'll wear it with pride (at least around the house!)
