Got busy and finished the vest, Mr Four was so pleased with it he refused to take it off.  Success.  Was so very happy with this effort.  Took me a while as I decided to knit it in one piece.  Now I know why these kinds of intricate patterns are done in separate pieces.  Soooo much counting, such a long time to knit one row.  Another lesson learned the hard way.

And now for something new.  I am learning to crochet.  I think that the two can compliment each other.  I have found some patterns that I really liked but they had a crochet component and as I couldn't crochet could not complete the project.  So here goes.  I have a basic knowledge of what to do but wasn't sure how to follow a pattern as I didn't know the name of the stitches.  Well, I got the basics down so I am getting adventurous ...

My first crochet hat.  It's going well, so I will keep at it.  Wooo Hooo so proud of myself.
