The moment Elmer walked through the coffeeshop during knit night, we couldn't help but stare. LOOK at all of that seed stitch! Connie stated, "It must be woven". She placed on her glasses, and declaired that it was indeed an entire vest out of the painstaking pattern. See the knit-in pockets? (Looks like Noro Kureyon to me.)
Elmer said that he has learned "What a Rowan is", and earns bonus points with his wife when he can point out a Starmore! Of course, she knit the vest for him.
Now, that's a lot of knitted love.Speaking of love, check out the wee baby felted slippers Deepa whipped up in less than 30 minutes. Aren't they adorable?
I don't know where the pattern is from, but I'm guessing the answer will be recorded in the comments below.
(The elegant model above is Connie, of course.)
