What started out as this: a traditional button front vest
Somehow, somewhere along the line, ended up
client: Well, I started thinking about something lacier, with maybe a ruffle up the front.
Me: Oh, I know just the thing, the pattern has sleeves but I can take the sleeves off, lower the armscye so that sleeves can be worn under it...yadayada
Client: "oh, that is exactly it...except I think I like it with the sleeves""Can we do it with the sleeves?"
ETA: Client is a friend of mine, a professional dressmaker so she does know what goes into things - she has an event which she would like to wear this to the first weekend in November, so I have just about 3 weeks - however since the project has changed so drastically, if it isn't ready in 3 weeks she will figure out an alternative to wear. Meanwhile I have 2 driving trips - one to Chicago, 12 hours in car, one to Athens GA (hi Kim) 20+ hours in car - both with dh driving most of it, so there is a lot of dedicated knitting time. On the other hand, I've done the swatch, and this is a 12 row repeat that one cannot take ones attention from for a moment.
