It has been a very busy week and my progress has been somewhat slow in knitting this vest. Of course with less than a week left to Arman’s birthday, this is not happiness! 😥

I have finished the back, as you can see…

Looking O.K. so far, don’t you think?

Now, about the front- don’t laugh, this is my progress:

I have an idea (as suggested by Arman’s mom) to include a kangaroo pocket. I am told he loves stuffing his little boy toys in it to take around with him. Never done a seamless pocket and definitely not a kangaroo one at that. Should not be too difficult to master though. :roll:

As far as the neckline, currently it is a toss between a round or a V neck. I also have some crazy idea about joining the front and back via narrow panels on each side. Will see how that will work out.

In conclusion, I shall need to do some serious knitting this weekend. At least we will have the perfect weather for it: cloudy and rainy!

    You have a little more time since the birthday party is delayed by one day. Can’t wait to see the final product. Arman is also checking the website regularly for updates!
