Vest Anyone?

Hi loves,

I know, yes, I'm aware I knit a lot of her patterns, but when the opportunity came to test knit yet another of Petra Breakstone's patterns, I just could not say no.  This time it was for her Karina Vest/Cardigan.  I had the option to do either a long or short vest and then convert it into a cardigan.  The choice was made to do the short vest.

Count me in I said, a few days pass before my start date was decided and the checklist completed.

  • Ravelry project page created ✅
  • Yarn decided ✅
  • gauge swatch completed ✅
  • cast on ✅
  • enjoying this simple knit ✅
Upon completing my project, here comes the task of getting a "good pic".  I tried to get my not-so-willing model to give me a pic, but of course, this was no fun to her so posing was an issue.

Even with a back turn, one can see the unwillingness.

don't mind that loose thread.

trying to get a close-up.

still not interested in taking a pic for me.

With no "good pic," I decided to try other models (lol)......

She wasn't even willing to be the photographer (guess I was stopping her from doing more important stuff)

Me trying a thing.

tried laying it flat.
now isn't this a shame... "heng pan nail" one my say...

Feeling defeated as I was yet to get a proper pic, I pushed my finished work aside until I got what I really wanted, my very own mannequin.... 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁

No talk truth...  Just look at this... What a difference???   


  1. Lol. Why was she so unwilling? She looks stunning it, as do you. I came across your pics of this and followed it to the pattern page and I love it! Have to see what I have in my stash to make it.

    1. Hi Patty, Sorry for just responding, She doesn't like taking pics. Thank you.. Hope you have made one for yourself. Let me know if you have.
