Well, I am pretty pleased with myself. Mid January and yesterday, I wore my first, finished knitting piece of 2015. That must be a record.
This - The Ophelia Vest and this, the one-piece sideways vest.
Needles: 5mm for the body. 4 1/2 mm for the first and last garter sections. This vest, knit side to side, these two garter sections form the start and finish trim. I thought they might be more supportive knit in a smaller needle size.
Yarn: Lettt Lopi in a pinkish colour. Because Nicki always tells me - my green wardrobe needs a refresher.
I planned the vest to have an off-centre closing and to have no separate trims. I thought the pattern, with its garter ridges would be trim enough in and of itself. And it was - along the armholes, at the bottom and everywhere except across the top of the fronts. They didn't hold themselves in place at all. Instead of crossing above the bust as you see the improved product doing here,
The vest is warm but lightweight. It is colourful but not green. I like it.
As I swelter in our summer heat and humidity I am so envious of your knitting productivity. Did you enjoy knitting with the Lett Lopi?
I love the way this turned out! You need more red!
Great looking vest. I love the off-set opening.
Niiice! and the colour looks great too! Belated Happy Birthday, Brenda!
