You only get one photo of him in it because he hates taking pictures and it was cold and he was ready to go. LOL This picture is actually a sneak peek of our holiday photos. I knit this vest for him with the holiday photos in mind and it’s an interesting construction that keeps you engaged and then just a lot of stockinette for the body. I knit it in a wool and cotton blend yarn, Haydenville, because he doesn’t like to get too overheated. What I didn’t think about was that the cotton would stretch a bit more when blocked, so I might pop it in the dryer or rip out some of the bottom garter ribbing. I’m leaning towards shrinking it just a bit – less work on my part.
My husband lives in sweater vests and button downs for winter, so I wanted to add something to his work wardrobe that I made just for him. He likes it, and wore this exact outfit to work today. But I know what he really wants is for me to get working on a few more hats for him now that he’s shaved his head. That’s next on my list!
