Here's what I've done so far. I'm just beginning to separate the front for the V-neck. I wanted to do an update on this 'cause I needed to show off this yarn. I'm in love with it! So YUMMY!
I found out that there is a good reason as to why I should have begun with the back; when I finish this right hand side of the front I have to cast off a bunch and then continue knitting just the collar. That's where the back comes in; I have to measure collar to be half as long as the neck space on the back. Oops! Let's see what happens when I just take a shot at it.
I began knitting the vest on the cover of the new Debbie Bliss magazine. But instead of using the yarn recommended I'm using my new bulky blue Eskimo 1 ply yarn that I got from a yarn blow-out sale in Surrey. I'm only about 6 inches into the front, but I'm so excited I had to share. check back soon for a photo of the finished product!
