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.

You are so great with these multi-color projects. Someday I need to study your technique--they turn out beautifully. Can't wait to see the vest.

Beautiful vest! Can't wait to see your next pair of mittens.

Oh, me too, me too! That vest has been on my list of things to knit for a couple of weeks now, and my fingers are just itching to get started. I don't have the yarn, yet, otherwise we could have had a little "knitalong".

Oooooooooh...I'm drooling over the color choices you made. This is going to snazz up those argyles!
