How to wear a wool sweater vest, in June...


1. Live in Cleveland
2. Wait for a cold snap
3. Have sweater on hand, especially mornings and evenings when you have a chance that it might be cool

We got our cold snap, lucky for me, and the boy got to wear his sweater vest a few times last week. I did not knit it vain. I'm not sure that it will fit come fall weather, we'll see. It is especially adorable with his white collar shirt. He likes it. He proclaims "handsome" every time I pull it over his head. It would have been nice to have finished it back in April, but sometimes life isn't like that. I finished, hurray. He wore it more than once, hurray. Life is like that and I am happy.

I used the cable vest pattern you can download from lionbrand.

I wish my boys could wear a sweater vest in June... I put them in theirs on Sunday and they were pretty hot. They came off right after church. I also wish I was as crafty as you to knit one. You are so awesome and your little guy is the sweetest!

Woah. He really does look super handsome. And I see you're sporting a short summer-do! Fun.
