A long time ago I bought a skein of Clouds from Moonrover. It was just too unusual to pass up. But every time I cast on for something it wasn’t quite right. The sad truth was that I am not that whimsical - I just am not the type to be able to pull it off.
It languished in the stash.
Until I had a baby.
Who can pull off whimsy if not babies?
I cast on a top-down vest onto size 13 needles. Even though I only had 5 minutes at a time I finished this vest in a day. Whenever I got to a cloud in the yarn I slipped those stitches purlwise with yarn in front. I knit until I ran out of yarn. It was kismet, I managed a vest for my 1year old in 85 yards of yarn.
I’m sure that you can recognize how proud I am of this project.
The cute kid too.
