O is for Oscar








I seem to have found my knitting groove again these past few weeks. Which is nice. 'Cause I do like to knit.

Here's my nephew Oscar's first birthday vest - only two months late. It's another Milo. Yes, I like this pattern, though if I knit it again (which is likely - this is number three) I might have to do something about those increases in the first row of stocking stitch after the yoke. They look like mistakes, and they're not, I promise. 

The Milo lets one choose one's cable pattern, and offers up an XO. I got all clever and changed it to just an O. O, O, O, O, O. Oscar, Oscar, Oscar, Oscar, Oscar! I'm sure he can hear me calling, saying, "Hang on, little man, your vest is on the way..."

Yarn is Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 8ply in Oceanic. Ravelry page here.
