Thanks, Bron and Priscilla, for the compliments. The vest was fun to do, and I may actually wear it.
For my next project I've decided to try something with sleeves. I had seen these one done by someone at Crochetville and realized I had the yarn in my stash and the pattern. It's the Crochet Ruffle Cardigan done in Plush. I had purchased four skeins in Wine some time ago, and I was thrilled to discover I had enough yarn in my stash for the cardi.
I don't know why I have such a block when it comes to wearables except that I don't have a lot of confidence in my ability to sew things together. I can duplicate any stitch or pattern, but sewing things together is like running into a brick wall. I reread all of the instruction books I have and watch the videos online before I begin and think I've got it, but when I pick up that needle I just freeze. I swear I'd drive 50 miles to take a class on finishing items if I could just find one.
