Gimme-a-T

q8~Our spinning class has the most wonderful group of women you’d ever hope to find: loving, caring, generous, etc. You’ve “met” Sara before on two of our posts Energize That Yarn!and Energized Yarn Update, she was the spinner. Here in living color is Sara modeling the wonderful Gimme-a-T vest which she did a fabulous job of knitting. The Gimme-a-T is from Knitters magazine #84, Fall 2006. Mega thanks to Sara for being such a wonderful model and allowing me to take her pic! This vest is so amazing! She said that she added extra stitches at the side seams since she thought the pattern looked to0 tight and wished she hadn’t because it’s a tad too loose.

See the woman standing in the back in the top picture? That’s Marianne (sp?), I call her the “Sock Wizard” since she makes the most fabulous socks. She always seems to be wearing a new pair. I’ll feature her in another blog.

  1. Thank you! You are too kind… I love that vest and I might actually consider knitting it again. It was a challenge but waiting to see the proper shapes appear made it fun and interesting. The pattern actually calls for several different colors to be knit in various striped patterns on each modular piece. I used one yarn that had occasional short runs of other colors. I might knit the next one with multiple colors but only one color per modular piece.
