Almost there!

I finished knitting one of the armbands on my mom's vest and believe it or not it was easy.
This is the first straight-forward easy part of this entire vest. I am hoping that I can complete the other armband after work today. Then all that is left is the collar. Let's hope that is as easy to complete. 
I picked up this yarn on a trip to ACMoore a couple of weeks ago. Have any of you tried it yet? I saw it made into a had on a friend's Facebook posting and it looked kind of neat.
I also got it in grey. I have another secret project in mind for it. I will post when it is completed.
Speaking of that friend, she has just started a new Facebook page. Pop on over to Randi's Original's to see some of the great knits she has to offer. I only recently found out that Randi is an extremely accomplished knitter. 
I am joining Ginny for Yarn Along again this week. What are you knitting/crocheting? What are you reading? Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are up to.
As for reading, I finished The Quilter's Apprentice by Jennifer Chiaverini. I have definitely found another series that I will thoroughly enjoy reading. Now I have Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good by Jan Karon on my Kindle. I have only just begun to read it. No opinion yet.
Thanks of stopping by!

Looks lovely. And I love your blog header. I am a bit of a cross stitch addict too and have that pattern as well!

All I have to do is get the cross-stitch framed sometime soon. Thanks for visiting and commenting.

Pretty yarn color. I haven't branched out into adult garments yet. The yarn is so expensive! I haven't tried that particular brand of Red Heart, but Red Heart is a good brand.

I think I should not have made this a surprise, but I know my mom would have discouraged this project for her otherwise. I really needed to have a better idea of size. This is going to be too big.
