I've been knitting a lot lately, but I still haven't managed to finish that much. I'm almost done with Eunny Jang's Deep V Argyle Vest. I just need to weave in the ends and finish the steeks. Cutting the steeks was some seriously scary business! I was so worked up about it that I forgot to take pictures! But this is what the almost finished vest looks like.
I really like the colors. I've used two completely different yarns, and I'm really surprised that they actually work together! The white yarn is Novita Nalle, a wool and polyamide fingering weight yarn. The green one is Rowanspun DK, an almost "tweedy" yarn with small blue specks in it. It's amazing how much the fabric changed after washing and blocking the vest!
I've also started a new project. Swallowtail shawl from IK fall 2006.
I seem to have a preference for green these days. And especially really light spring green shades.
My Bayerische Socks are also coming along nicely. I finished the first one a few days ago, and I'm already on the third repeat on the second one. These are absolutely my favorite socks so far! The details are amazing, and they fit perfectly.
I also like the fact that they're so much more challenging than most of the sock patterns out there. It takes a while to get comfortable with the charts and the pattern, but the reward is so worth it! I can't wait to finish the second sock so I can wear them!
