The Sweater

I knit Aine a sweater vest for her birthday. I was so pleased about the design and yarn. I was using stash yarn (Peace Fleece) and a free pattern. I finished by the weekend of her birthday celebration with family. I took her to pick out a button. She chose a shimmery red button. THis did not even come close to matching the purple with navy trim vest, but I acquiesced as it is her vest. She tried it on after I sewed on the button. The verdict...

Scratchy! She hates it and refuses to wear it. I even tried washing it to soften the fibers. Nope. It is sitting in the top of her closet unworn. Of well, it may be a bit of time before she receives any more handknits.
