Just a quick weekend outfit post including a new knitting project. I knitted this vest while I was in Germany in December. I kind of toured all across the country from Duesseldorf to Berlin, visiting friends and family along the way (and any Christmas market that I came across!!!!) This left me with lots of dead time on trains and planes which I used to indulge in some knitting.
This is the result of all that knitting. A dark teal coloured vest. The pattern is again from Fitted Knits, just like this jumper and this bolero. It was the first knitting project that involved a little more pattern work that the previous ones. I really enjoyed making it, as just plain knitting or purling can get a bit repetitive and boring after a while.
this is the picture in the book (source)
I was lucky I found a wool aran in a similar colour as the one in the book. I really liked the look of it.
I finally got to wear it this weekend. My husband and I went to Henley on Thames for a little walk around town, charity shop browsing and a few rest day (Sundays are usually the only days I don't train) treats.
The mint green blouse came out to play again, matching sunnies and my super high waist trousers
beer and pastries, yes please!!!
