What I finished today (1/6/08)



The Ivy League Vest by Eunny Jang - Interweave Knits Winter 2007



Knit Picks Palette

Twig
Nutmeg
Rainforest Heather
White
Fog
Mist


Size 4 needles


What a great stash buster! The 'sampler' pack of Palette was here and seemed to be a great substitute for the original yarn (plus, it's already paid for). The colors seem to match pretty well.
I've learned from small stranding projects in the past, but am not a pro...yet. The results are pretty good and any unevenness evened out in the blocking.

This project is addictive!


Pictured is my second attempt - the first was past the neck shaping and I did not pay close enough attention to the directions. PLUS, my skills/technique had improved. I will make little purses or something out of the first attempt.



This is the first time I used steeks and there was not much anxiety about cutting, but I did elect to stitch on each side of the cut.


-Absolutely my favorite project of all time and I discovered that I LOVE color work.
