I’ve always avoided vests. There are several reasons for this. Among them are a prejudice of The Adored One and the idea that my arms need to hidden from the masses - both for modesty and because that much white flabbiness is far from comely.
So, no vests for Elysbeth. Not even that darling little Ribwarmer. Of course….the Yarn Harlot and her recent Green Ribwarmer inspired envy, a desire to make one (I have all of EZs books), and a sigh of regret.
Until it dawned on me that it was a Winter Garment, and would be worn with Long Sleeves Under NEATH! -Slap forehead- So now the Wensleydale I was spinning, and having yardage doubts about will be repurposed.
How something this evident escaped me shows that while I may be brilliant, I am not always smart. Perhaps it is a Universal Reminder to give others a break when they too, miss the blatantly obvious.
