Openwork Lace Vest

Between work, knitting and taking care of the kids.. it's really hard for me to keep up with this blog.. but I finally got around to take some pictures of my project. The following is a vest I designed about a year ago and the pattern will be available in the Jan Issue of Creative Knitting which is out in Nov this year.

When I designed this vest, all i wanted is to make a very lacy vest that I could wear for work and for fun and I wanted a very quick knit. The sample in the picture was worked in Ultra Alpaca and only required 3 skeins. The vest was worked in a round using size 8 circular needle with minimal seaming. The version in the picture is a shorter version; whereas the version in the magazine will be a longer version of the same vest. This vest is meant to wear close to the body with possible 2 inches negative ease.

Baby Lace Cardigan

Finally got around to get some picture taken for my projects and introduce my cute little daughter. This Lace baby cardigan was designed when I realized that I was expecting a girl last year... in a way, I was so excited that I am having a girl because I can make so many cute things for little girl. the following and above few pictures are the baby lace cardigan that I designed and I am happy to announce that the pattern will be available in the November Issue of Creative Knitting (out in sept) for those of you who might be interested in the design. The pattern is available from size 6 month - 2 yrs.

Following is the pictures of the baby cardigan and let me introduced my very own Channah as the model for the cardigan.
