Vested for Fall
So, I finished the vest yesterday afternoon. I made the smallest size, so it is a close fit, but not uncomfortably so. I did make it about two inches shorter in length and I opted not to add the belt loops since I thought I would probably wear it more without the belt. The only thing I don't like is how the yarn sheds so much.
I went to the Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival in Canby with Mariko and Hedi yesterday morning. It was really fun. I liked seeing all the animals, including sheep, llamas, and goats. I bought this purple Lynx sock yarn from Angora Valley Fibers for the Tyrolean Stockings, another pattern from the latest Interweave Knits. I'm making the socks a little bit larger because the yarn is supposed to full up a bit and result in a nice soft fabric.
