I finally found some time for knitting. And I can tell you it feels good. It was a quick project . it took only two days and I love it.
I named it Ginny Weasley's vest because I think it looks like something Molly would knit for her youngest.
like always - I didn't follow any pattern. I just made it up as I knitted.
started at the back (which is all orange with a little white on top and little purple at the bottom)
and I continued by knitting the two sides of the front at the same time)
at the end I added white edges (knitted at the bottom and crocheted at the rest of the vest)
and two turquoise buttons I had at home :)
I used needles too big for the yarn, so it is summer vest, it's 100% cotton and unique because I have absolutely no idea what I did (sorry, no pattern to share, but if you want a vest like this, just knit!)
- 1 skein (50grams) of orange yarn
-1 skein (50 grams) of rainbow yarn
-lil' bit of white cotton for the edges and the top
and here is a little GIVEAWAY! :)
I will be giving away this camera-strap slip cover
before you get too excited I have to tell you it's nothing professional - I'm not a sewing expert and I can hardly keep a straight line, but:
it features Amy Butler fabrics - Love collection
it was made with LOVE
it has little pocket (to keep spare memory cards etc. - it will NOT hold your lens-cover because it's too narrow)
it is 62cm (24.4 inches) long and 5 cm (2 inches) wide
(it fits my CANON camera strap, but if the winner needs wider/longer strap cover - I could make one more (with slightly different fabrics - but still LOVE by Amy Butler - and blue/green)
it has a little crocheted PEACE sign on one end
front is green with red-pink roses and violet flowers
back is dark blue with flower pattern
it is cotton and perfect for summer
made in smoke free and pet-free environment
the giveaway ends next Wednesday (1st June) and I will pick one random winner
