I never wore this vest one time after I finished knitting it, not even to a guild meeting as show and tell. It was not fun to wear and didn't feel good. It was snowing when I woke up this morning and continued to snow all day. I ended up watching NCAA basketball and turning that vest into this. It's going to be a reverse stockinette vest knitted in the round. So much for fancy. I also decided to try my hand at knitted head- bands. The plastic ones can be pretty tight and I'm pleased at how comfortable these are. I made them 17" long and stitched them together, not well I might add, but the seam is hidden by hair. Alexia is on school break this week so we're baby- sitting. DD Chris brought her out late this afternoon after the snow finally quieted down. Alexia entertained herself with her Little Petshop figures while we tortured ourselves with NCAA basketball. This is her favorite dog, I think. I don't know actually as she had a story for every figure, including two mice she said were twins named Qwimsy and Mimsy. She read a story to me and afterward I told her that this was a first, as always before I had read to her. She said, Uh-huh, and I was good! She's in remedial reading at school so I was pleased at her excitement. We'll read more throughout the week. Note the bear to her left. He's wearing a Cat in the Hat T-shirt and glasses.
