I finished swatching the Louisa Harding Kimono Angora last week. The gauge on the label says four stitches an inch on size seven needles, but I got five stitches. Coincidently, after I finished knitting my swatch, the Knitter's Review review of Kimono Angora came out last week. So, with my swatch done, I set out to write up my vest pattern yesterday. It was inspired by these Carolina Herrera vests from her spring 2006 collection. I'm drawn to the low scoop neck, but am making mine a little bit longer in length. I also think I may add some embroidery. I'll start casting on this afternoon!
