With my Noro Vest complete, it's on to my next project. I can't decide whether to start Sally Melville's Centre Paneled Vest/Sweater
Warm Knits, Cool Gifts. Centre Paneled is how I've decided to use this stash yarn.
With this ball of co-ordinating Twilley's Freedon for the centre panel it should look great.
OR - should I start Peasy
with my door-prize bag of Zara.
Hmmm. I've had the green yarn since September 2009, the Zara since June 2010. Should yarns be knit in chronilogical order?
Hmmm. The centre paneled piece can be knit as either a vest or a sweater - the pattern includes both. If I got as far as the vest and liked the result, I could stop. Can't do that with Peasy.
Hmmm. Peasy in off white might still get some wear before the real hot weather arrives. Can't wear fuzzy,, warm, wooly, green yarn in June.
Hmmm. Peasy I love. All aspects of it. Centre Paneled I'm not sure about the back. It is rounded and hangs several inches lower than the front. Supposedly - according to Sally - quite chic. My issue with that design is that I ski. I have seen those types of butt protectors on the chair lift. The semi circle of fabric that hangs lower than the front of the jacket to keep the butt protected from wet seats on the ride up the hill. Although I did message ckknits on ravelry who has knit the vest to question her opinion of the design and she gave it a thumbs up.
Peasy! Because: 1) It's something I want to knit and I'd love your opinion/take on it. 2) It's a more classic design. 3) I think it will look great on you!!!
Oh I vote Peasy too! The rate you knit you'll be done with lots of time to wear it this spring!
another vote for Peasy! But then I'm a big cardi fan, and I too want you ropinion on this pattern!
Just to add a little more confusion.... quite a few of the new tops coming into the store actually have the front coming down lower then the back:-)
Go funky!! and try the Sally vest/sweater... It's your favourite colour combo...
Then knit Peasy...
Peasy is so you!
While CP is very cool, I think it could have a tendency to look sloppy, as a sweater, if knit with as much ease as...well, as it needs to look like itself. Did that make sense? It looks like it might take regular readjusting while wearing, as well. P'raps not something you want to do while skiing? As a vest, of course, this would be less of an issue. :)
Whatever you decide, I'm sure it'll work out fine.
