If it's wrong to love a vest of merino/silk more than my fiance... I don't want to be right. Okay - maybe not more - but it's close.
Yes, I'm talking about my Slinky Vest. It came off the blocking board last night, and I sewed the front bands and collar and attached the clasps. I tried it on and it fit perfectly (I love it when that happens!)
I wasn't planning on wearing it right away. As mentioned, I was hoping to get a new sundress (well actually make one - but that's another story). But, last night I was putting away laundry before bed, and I discovered a forgotten jersey dress in the dark recesses of the closet (I wouldn't be surprised to find Narnia in there, to be honest). It's soft clay-beige, and is the perfect compliment to the mottled purple, pink and green tones of the yarn.
So I wore it to work today!
The picture does not do it justice, but I couldn't wait to show you. Better pics will come this weekend when my personal photographer (AKA Mom) helps me show this beauty's true colours!
Many of you know how I feel about the perfect buttons/closure for every project - check out these...
I am looking for test knitters for this, so if you're interested, let me know. I have four sizes I'd like tested.
And speaking of test knits....
