Finishing the Emma Yummy Yummy Vest

Emma’s Yummy Yummy Vest is off the hook and the gazillion ends are woven in. The trim has been worked around the edges and all that is left to do is rinse and block it. Oh, and find the perfect buttons for it. Though it is a child’s size 2-3, it probably will be too large for the petite Emma for another six months at least. Maybe longer.

Gathering inspiration from a number of sources, and a mix of patterns to boot, I made the Emma Yummy Yummy vest using an interesting “make 1 sc into the next stitch” from Whit’s Knits on Purl Bee. This vest is probably a bit heavier than the pattern, Whit’s Knits: Classic Vest for Little Kids because of the medium weight, acrylic yarn I used. The pattern called for a merino, cashmere and nylon yarn.

But the colorway is all Angie’s inspiration (Sucrette) http://www.lemondedesucrette.com/–those beautiful, bright colors that make a person happy just to look at them. Yummy Yummy!

Emma’s Yummy Yummy Sweater Vest

Inspired by the bright and cheery color palette used by Angie shown in her blog,  Le Monde de Sucrette, http://www.lemondedesucrette.com/2013/01/21/snapshots-of-love-1/ I am working on a crocheted sweater vest for my granddaughter, Emma Adrienne.

774275_3856948477049_591894459_oOne of Emma’s first phrases was “yummy yummy”. She used it when she was hungry. The colors in this piece are so lovely, it made me think “yummy yummy”.

I think it works.


Emma’s New Sweater

Emma has many pretty sweaters. But it is always nice to have another, don’t you think? Visiting Sucrette’s website I was enchanted by the beautiful color combinations of this talented fiber artist.

Everyday kinds of things are made brilliant because of the skills of the artist and the magical assortment of colors she uses.

So I borrowed her palette and have set about making Emma a new sweater vest. The pattern is a simple children’s vest using a nubbly crochet stitch. The Colors.Image
