The Shepherd’s Vest is underway!

Some time ago, Tina inquired about having me knit a vest for her husband, The Shepherd.

She spent a good part of the last year spinning the yarn of wool from two of their shetlands- and I just got the goods yesterday.

So today, I am making a start.

She sent along a sweater vest that fits him well, that I can use for sizing, and a pattern to work from for the general style.

It’s swatching out at just under 4 stitches per inch on size 7s. And away we go!

Have a great week!
