Today's knitting is brought to you by Mom. It is the Seamingly Simple Vest by Blue Moon Fiber Arts. She got the pattern and yarn at Stitches West this year and it is really quite clever. You knit one really long, wide panel which ends up being the front of the vest. It goes from the bottom of one side, up and around your neck and back down to the bottom of the other side. As it goes behind your neck it folds creating a natural collar. Then you pick up stitches and knit a panel down the back and seam it to the sides. That's it. Just a whole lotta ribbing. She is doing a great job and I can't wait to see it all finished.
Speaking of finished - I finished the Jamaica pouch awhile ago and wanted to show you how it turned out. I highly recommend this pattern for colorful cotton. It is quick and really cute.
Currently I am struggling with a holiday scarf. I bought some gorgeous Touch Me yarn in both deep red and deep green with an idea of what I wanted to make. However it didn't look right. Since then I have tried a number of patterns and nothing is quite right. It's making me crazy but hopefully I can find something soon before the yarn wears out! If you have any great suggestions for a two color scarf please let me know.
