Now what sort of knitter would I be if I didn't make the little fella a new handknit item to wear for his birthday (I guess I'm lucky his birthday falls in mid-autumn and not mid-summer, heh!).
As it can still be quite warm around this time of year (just not yesterday, brrrrr), I thought a vest would be best. And I had this lovely handspun from my clever knitting and now spinning friend Ms Funky. Perfect!
I wasn't sure I'd have enough of the red for the body, so I added in a couple of stripes across the chest, just to be safe. I was knitting pretty close to the wire, deadline wise, so I didn't want to have to rip back in case I ran out.
