My first "not a hat" knitted project

. . . is finished!

On Wednesday morning, it looked like this.  Pretty close.

By Wednesday afternoon, it looked like this.  All loose ends woven in.  Buttons sewn on.   Pale pink buttons matching up with buttonholes.

And, as I mentioned before, it fits her perfectly.  

I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.  I think I might even be confident enough to see if I can alter the pattern to make a bigger one for her.  Bigger wool, larger gauge needles.

Now, before any of you think that this is turning into a knitting blog - even though I said it wouldn't - here is a recent pic of little Cally up close.  And yes, she's wearing her new vest.

I think she likes it too.

Looks like you've been knitting all your life - can imagine your joy seeing Cally IN it! I LOVE the subtle pink buttons you picked that either have some gray in them or reflect the gray. To have them match up with the button holes is a HUGE achievement! Yes - go on & on with your knitting adventure:)
Hugs, Diane
