Hearts is finished, and I must admit I am totally happy with the result. I love the little hearts among the naive garter stitch pattern. I think the garter stitch saves the heart shapes from being only the cliché it often is.

The vest fits my little girl like nothing else, not only does it fit her shape, it is so her (if one may say something like that about a two and a half year old child). And I think I got the sleeve caps just right, including the edges. It has such pretty details, this little vest. As always, the girl is thrilled about me having made something especially for her, and I know she'll want to wear it a lot.

The yarn was once again a new experience for me. This time Duo by Designclub.dk, a fingering weight merino which was quite an experience to work with. I had to frog quite some rows (yes, the 380+ sts were way too much..), resulting in a yarn so thin I barely dared reusing it. Still the fabric shows no sign of this. And it is very soft, in a merino kind of way. Will definitely choose it again.

Thank you all so much, your comments mean a lot to me!

The pattern is soon ready, just have to read it through one more time to prevent too many erratas..

You all just made my day!
