Photo Finish!

The Shepherd’s Vest is done! I handed it off to Tina on Saturday.

Sure do hope it fits. I’m so used to being able to do try-ons as I go when I knit for myself and The Man.

I think it turned out really well.

The yarn being two colors gives a nice marled effect and provides enough textural interest without any cabling or patterned stitches.

It hopefully will serve as a dependable go-with-everything extra layer.

Can never have too many sweaters like that.




And so now it’s on to the next project!

This is the rest of the half-fleece I bought back in November. Just freshly washed up.


It has a nice range of colors that I’ve sorted into light, medium and dark batches.


I’ve already used some of it to knit some socks (because it’s just so easy to cast on for more standard recipe socks).


But I’ve already got a couple more skeins in standby, and I’m thinking of a sweater.

A Shades of Gray sweater. Dark to light, or light to dark.

Light and soft and simple.

    The vest is perfect! The pattern does such a good job of showing off the yarn, and the fit is just right (saw it over at Tina’s, in pics of it on the lucky recipient! 🙂 )

    Good job!!! 🙂
