:: neighborly, by Jennifer Casa

‘My knitting enthusiasm has dwindled to something more like realism…’ wrote Kim, ‘I don’t think I am going to get around to knitting this vest in the time frame in which Sarah would wear it’.

So we agreed, I’d knit it up, and in exchange, Kim gave me copies of all the patterns she drafted for her daughter’s wardrobe (this of course will mean that should I ever have a kid, it’ll be a boy. Because fate is like that…).

My half of this neighbourly exchange is shown above. I was reasonably pleased with it, though I’d have liked the strips on the collar to be more obvious.

Kim chose Debbie Bliss Eco Cotton for the body, and Noro Taiyo for the stripes.  The Eco Cotton has a lovely drape and soft feel, though like a lot of cotton yarns it’s very splitty and does not take kindly to being frogged.
