This is a very easy knit. I was too lazy to calculate all the numbers so I just used Petrol's sizing. When I knitted Petrol, I used the medium sizing but my gauge is different than called for so it worked out smaller than it says. My dad is a little shorter than my brother so the vest should be okay length-wise.
So now that both FO are finished, I am able to cast on something else now. I think my next project would be the Hemlock Ring Blanket by Jared Flood. There is a KAL on this, click here if you are not on Ravelry, if you are, queue it here.
Speaking of KAL, I joined the Mystic Water KAL, thanks to CostumChick!! Yeah, I know, I have problems.
Switch gear to some wedding stuff - on the way to the gym, David stopped into Walgreens for a bottle of water, and he immediately called once he stepped in, "honey, turn the car off and come inside." Okay... maybe he forgot money... I walked in, there they are, lots of autumn decorations for $0.99 and $1.99... We came home with these:
15 metal leaves candle holders for $1.99 each and 4 ceramic maple leave candle holders for $0.99 each! And some Apple Cider tealights
The reason we only got 4 of the ceramic ones is because they ran out. We went to 3 other Walgreens on and off the way home but no one had it... :( I'm so sad now. So if you see them in your local Walgreens, please let me know!
