Deep V Argyle Vest
You thought I had forgotten about this project? Oh no. Eunny’s Deep V Argyle vest is still on the agenda, and more, I have started to work on it. I chose Jaeger Extra Fine Merino DK in the colours Raspberry and Blackcurrant, and got gauge directly on needles 3,5 mm Addi bamboos. The yarn is heaven to knit with; it’s soft and sweet against the hands. I am almost done with the decreases, and have so far used one ball of the blue and one and a half of the red. The pattern stated that three of both are enough, but I ordered a fourth ball of the red, just to be on the safe side.
I’m afraid I will not get much done on this project for a while, I’m off to Copenhagen tomorrow morning, and will be away for three days. After that will the week be pretty hectic, the schools have started and there will be a lot of catching up. I plan to take the vest with me to Copenhagen, but again, I doubt I’ll have any knitting time.
Autumn afternoon sun: pine needles and the vest
I do also want to thank you for all the kind words over the Paitsu mittens. The mittens have made me think a lot, I have done some initial research, and I’m about to challenge myself with a very special mitten project. But it asks for more research, and I will post about that in couple of weeks time. Until then I’ll work on my vest.
