A busy week

Last week began with a birthday. Can you believe my baby turned one already? The precocious little guy has been walking since Memorial Day weekend so we're in full toddler mode now.


The big knitting event of the week was that I finally finished all the knitting for the Estes Vest. Here it is blocking.
All it needs now are buttons. I had some difficulty finding toggle buttons. Neither of my local yarn stores had the kind I wanted. I was directed to the local fabric store, which is sadly going out of business, but they did have nice wooden toggles. The one positive of the store closing is that everything is on sale and I got 7 toggles (one extra) for about $3. They weren't the right color (too pale), but I'm experimenting with some tea staining.

We'll see how it goes. As soon as the vest is dry and the buttons are on, I'll post again. I've been wishing it were finished already during all these cool rainy days so you can expect summer to truly begin in the Northeast as soon as it is finished.
