deliciousness

i mentioned before that i was up at stitches west - i picked up a bag of this great noro silk garden (along with a bunch of other things that i am sure will eventually end up in their own post)...


when i saw this colorway, i fell in love and i knew i had to have it even though i had no idea what i was going to make with it. while i was still up in the bay area i was dying to knit with it, and what started as a swatch slowly turned into the beginnings of yet another vest. i kept going back and forth with the idea of making a sweater, or a cardigan. but in the end with how the color shift naturally occurs, i think i will be the most happy with a vest. i'm loving the way it's knitting up:


speaking of vests, i blocked the pieces of the other vest i was working on the other night, and i pulled them off the board today to start assembling. that's in the works now, and as soon as i sew all the seams together i will start on the neck and armhole banding.


that's it for now, i will try to remember to take progess shots along the way, but i always get too wrapped up in the project to stop and document the process. i used to be really good at that when i was in studio for school, it really makes looking back at what went into the finished piece really fun and interesting.
