Americano Vest from Berroco

I think the hottest thing for fall will be vests.  So I looked around for a pattern to make for Sophia.  We found this one.  I ordered everything I needed from Jimmy Beans Wool.  It came like 2 days later!! I was very surprised.

The Berroco Vintage Chunky yarn is very nice to work with. I zipped right through the back piece.  I had no problem with the left front BUT I have been knitting the right front while I am in another world.  I was almost done and realized I had forgotten to knit in the buttonholes, frog it!  2nd time, I didn't get the buttonholes even, frog it!  3rd time, I was almost done knitting the piece and I forgot to stop knitting the pattern and it was 5 inches too long.  I guess I just zone out while I am knitting!!  4th time - hopefully I get it right this time!!

Wish me luck!!  Maybe the 4th time is the charm! haha!
