it’s not like I wouldn’t have enough projects that would love my attention but when going to our weekly knit meetups I don’t want to crochet every single time. I was crocheting on my sunflower blanket/granny squares for every single meeting through the last months. And I find myself observing all the others who use two needles with a little sentimental emotions. Soooo it was time for a new knit, one that could be easily transported and would be appropriate for a chitchat group like ours.

The yarn will be a pain in the ass I already can tell, it’s super slippery. Maybe that’s normal with bamboo. It’s the first time I use bamboo, so we will see. I want to knit a little vest/cardigan to wear during summer over dresses. My first idea was to knit goodale, but I checked the projects on this one and even though I will make it (maybe even this summer) I won’t be using the yarn I want to use at the moment. Which btw is Alize Bamboo Fine Batik Design. It’s sooooo gorgeous!!! A friend at our meetings has made a small shawl with it and it’s the softest thing I ever ever ever felt!

so which pattern will I make? good question. I considered using some small needles (2.5mm) and couldn’t find anything that I liked, that’s why I started designing my own little vest. I will knit up and down to get some lengthwise stripes instead of .. well around the body. I have no idea how that will turn out but I’m in a good mood for this so I started swatching..
