Just finished the Dottie Oregon vest this weekend, and she turned out great. Just needs a zipper now, and that should come in the mail in a couple of weeks.
Minor adjustments to the pattern- I added a little waist shaping, sloped the shoulders off just a bit, and widened the neck by a few stitches.
I’m really in love with the way the fabric feels. Substantial and strong, but fluffy and with a little bit of a fuzzy halo.
It’s too bad it’s too warm out now to wear it, but I’m sure it will get a lot of use once the weather turns cool this fall.
And here’s a fun little bit of splashy color to round out the week’s wool-work. Approximately 380 yards. No idea what it might eventually be. For now, it’s just fun and fruity yarn basking in the sun.
Your Oregon Vest turned out beautifully!!!
thanks Michelle- I’m really happy with it. It’s one of the few patterns that I have knit more than once!
I love your Dottie Oregon vest. The fun, fruity yarn is lovely. Curious what you are going to do with it.
thanks Donna- no idea what I might do with the fruity yarn. I don’t think it’s got enough twist to make durable socks,,, so maybe I’ll find a way to work it into a sweater project.
