Winter woollies in summer

I've turned my focus at the moment to making woollen vests for winter using blankets from op shops.  It's turned into a bit of a production line, and I'm making up to 4 in each style, in sizes 1, 2, 3 & 5, but considering doing a size 6.  The size 5 would fit for a while I'm sure though.  Evie at 6 1/2 will fit into her 5 for at least a few years I'm sure, though she is slender.  I just found 4 more blankets at op shops yesterday, so there are more colours to come.  Some vests have gorgeous handmade wooden buttons bought on our recent trip to Tasmania, and some have fabric covered buttons.  I'll stash these babies away until the weather has a bit more of a chill in the air.
