Pebble Vest

I am currently in California visiting with my parents right now. We thought it would be fun to have a baby shower and one last visit before Luscious comes. I would like to point out though that traveling is not the same when you're seven months pregnant. I went to bed last night with swollen hands, feet, and legs and woke up this morning with a sore everything. I also managed to run into a knitting snafu, but more on that once I've uploaded pictures. 

In the meantime, here's the Pebble Vest! This was a super, super quick knit. It's a free pattern for newborns on Ravelry but if you look through the projects, plenty of people have up-sized it to fit a variety of ages. I ended up using some of the yarn left over from the Essential Cardigan and even though it's not superwash, it looks so rustic and cozy. Besides, I doubt he'll be wearing this for very long since I just knit the newborn size. I bought the buttons at JoAnn for something like $2 so this was a very economical vest. I would definitely knit another as a gift since they're so easy to whip up!

  1. It is perfect. Well done and take care of yourself.

  2. That is SO smart to put those terrific, bright blue buttons on that neutral brown! Such a smart accent they are.
    Hope you're having a great Cali visit! I'm a born & bred City by the Bay gal.

  3. I love your pebble vest ... it's always so wonderful to see simple designs knit up so beautifully! Hope you get to rest a lot -- take good care!

  4. Cute vest! Love the buttons!!
    Enjoy your visit

  5. This is so cute! I love the button choice. :) Have fun on your visit but take time to recover too... 7 months pregnant is no joke on the body!

  6. Very cute! I hope some of your aches and swellings abate. It seems if I walk for over 15 minutes it feels like my hips are going to break apart these days. Put your feet up and do some more knitting. :)

  7. An adorable pebble vest! I knit one of these, and loved the pattern.

  8. Love it! This pattern has been in my queue for the color!

  9. oh i love that pattern - and your vest turned out just perfectly!
    traveling is hard when you're pregnant - take it easy on yourself.


I'd love to hear from you!
