Started the shut up and knit it vest
I am knitting an eccentric argyle. It may be a vest. If it goes well, and there is enough yarn, (As it appears there will be) I will add sleeves and it will be a sweater. I am knitting it side to side because the diamonds are longer that way. This is the worsted weight, on size 7 needles. I'm excited!
This is from Dave Daniel's hand dyed Cabin Cove Mercantile yarn. Most knitters are inclined to buy it, then keep it as a pet. It's sooo pretty in the skeins. It's so soft and yummy and pretty! But it deserves to be knited up into a garment or article of use and delight, hence the knit-along.
And this is the square beret I knitted out of multi-plied weaving yarn while I was cogitating a design for the vest. (maybe a sweater)
I have tried on this hat in several different orientations (over one eye, on the back of the head, with points horizontal or diagonally oriented) and it's cute as a basket full of hound dog puppies any way you wear it! I may make a few more of these. Mmmmm- what a shape for cables!
More ideas than time to knit them. Ain't life wonderful?!!
