I finished knitting my second ever garment a few days ago. Hooray! Since then I have been intermittently attempting to get Cohen to wear the aforementioned vest for long enough to take a photo.
I'm admitting defeat with regards to the uncooperative model. So I present for prosperity the finished toddler vest II, sans toddler. Complete with correct stitch count at the neck and a somewhat successful (I think?) attempt at picking up stitches, using internet tutorials and the unsure-if-I-am-doing-this-correctly-but-muddling-through-anyway method.
I am holding on to the hope that he will wear it when it gets cold enough...
