The jacket, a doubling pattern of 2 whites, 6 blues, 4,4,6,2. The jacket is based upon the Seamless Baby Kimono.
The blanket is your basic ball band dishcloth baby blanket gone rectangle. The stripes are a sequence of ridges, 1, 2, 3 up to 7 ridges of white each separated by one ridge of blue.
The wee hat is a simple cast on of 60 (this is a relatively thick yarn) with even stripes of 4 blue and 3 white all the way up to the wee toggle at the top.
The booties, simple socks knit farmer style in one row stripes of blue and white.
Each one a different sort of stripes, but it all looks cute together.
As to vest blocking, no not yet.
It is completely possible that I am avoiding the issue. In the effort to avoid it, I am finding a dozen things to work on instead. Work in progress things. Not new things! Things I can really pat myself on the back and say 'good girl' for.
I have delved into the basket of unfinished socks and am working on those. One last pair is now ready for heels, and the poor Earl Gray Socks , which, the last time you saw them, were two different sizes, are now being re-knit, and will be the same.
I might be avoiding the vest, but I will take some comfort that it is taking me to a place where I needed to go anyway. That sock bin was getting a wee bit too full for comfort.
If I keep avoiding the truth of the vest, who know where it might lead.
