We Have a Neckline


Whew! I am delighted to report that the vest is coming along beautifully thus far. As you can see, I have started the neckline decreases. Since I have been using a row counter, I know that I have about 32 more ever-decreasing rows left to knit. I will, of course, still need to steam block and sew it together. I have been doing a ribbed edge at the armholes, and am hoping to get away with not having to knit on some kind of finishing edge there.


And in honor of today being Tu B'Shvat, I baked some cookies. These are called White Chocolate, Apricot, Almond Chunk Cookies, but since Avi doesn't like almonds all that much, I used pecans instead. We also didn't have white chocolate bars, so I used chips. These spread out a bit more than I'd hoped, but they are extremely tasty. Happy New Year of the Trees!

That vest has a really neat front; what causes that? It looks like it is locked together, cool. The cookies were a good idea, and in honor of the trees, couldn't you also have lemon meringue pie? That looks like what those fruit on wikapaedia show.
