Photography skillz strike again!
Pattern: Sexy Vesty
Yarn: about 3.5 skeins of Lang Merino Superwash

Time to complete: one bloomin’ week!

Sometimes you get addicted to a knit. That’s definitely what happened in this instance. The yarn was really co-operating with me, and the little lace pattern was very simple to memorize (well, truth be telt, I only memorized it for the last two diamond repeats….)

I’m not entirely sure what possessed me to knit a vest. I don’t wear vests.

Like many garments, I would see cute little tops of this particular fashion in stores and think “cute on dummy – not so cute on me”. This is the same line of thinking that prevents me from purchasing very heavily cowled sweaters, tights, trapeze jackets, super minis and clothing items with expressively-large buttons.

Fortunately, this one has left me feeling positive about knitting again (after the malaise I was under in the post-Tareja days of last week). And I’m rather pleased with how it looks atop a regular ol’ scoopneck tee.

This one may get some use out of it!

In new cast-on news:
I was supposed to have something to show for myself re: a particular sweater in a lovely Russet-y shade of Samira Silk from Handmaiden.
Sadly, I’ve naught.
Well, naught that would be interesting to photograph.
I have already discovered a misjudgement in my design plans, and instead of frogging the very few rows I’ve actually knit, I will be doing the good ol’ improvised-fix in the end.
Here’s to hoping I’ve enough yarn to make this one!
I shall return with something to show for myself.
Shortly.
