Current Knitting Projects (West Coast)

Here is a vest I am working on right now... I am knitting the vest out of some very pretty vareigated hand dyed yarn I bought at the Stitches West show earlier this year. I bought a huge hank, not knowing what I would do with it. I recently bought Rowan 38, a really inspiring pattern book, and have come up with a knock off (easier version) of one of the vest patterns. My yarn is a mereno/mohair mix. I have added a dark brown boarder to accent the yarn, and make up the base, neck, and armholes. So far it looks great. When knitting with vareigated yarns, I like the little color surprises that happen every couple of rows.

Your vest looks better than the one in the Rowan book. Will you get to keep it or is it a gift?

Thanks. I am making this for myself. I just finished four months of knitting gifts for baby showers and Christmas. Now it is my turn to play.
