At the urging of my internet pal Holly (who blogs HERE) I have started a kauni effektgarn vest. (Note the link for the yarn is not where it came from but will show those unfamiliar the color ranges and gives a definate "diving off" point for anyone willing to take the plunge!).
This vest started with a twisted rib - casting on 240 stitches and knitting in pattern for 3 inches on size 3 needles! It took a while, but now I'm acclimated and a few rows into the fair isle part (which generously allows the increase of needle size albeit only to size 5 in my case!) The vest is made in the round, with STEEKING (eek) for the armholes and neck opening! I am ready and tackling this with fervor. Last night I didn't want to sleep - I wanted to keep knitting on my vest... I can't wait to show you a pattern repeat of the trees!
I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend and spring break - it's back to school this week and time to focus on closing in on the last weeks of university!
