Happy Birthday Mam!

Today is my Mam's umpty-third birthday. Happy Birthday to her.

I completed her gift a week or so ago and got it in the mail, so I hope she's received it in time. Anyway, here it is, the Provincial Waistcoat from Interweave Knits Winter 2006.

It is about 4 inches wide, but is VERY stretchy - it'll need to be - the family disco has some girth, let me tell you! It's meant to be fitted, so I hope it's gonna look good on her.

The yarn is Brooks Farm Mas Acero - it was lovely to work with, really soft, and the finished product is nice and squishy. My mam does like a little bit of sparkle, so these buttons were perfect, they have glitter around the edges. Not that you'll be able to tell from my photography!

Oh that yarn is beautiful!!! I've always kind of steered away from it b/c it reminded me of Texas...but your Mam's b-day present might sway me to try it someday!

She'll love it!
