I finished up the Skye Vest last night. Here it is in all its (still damp) glory. Too bad I have to wait until Christmas to see how it looks on the intended wearer.
Here are the specs:
-Pattern: Skye Tweed Vest by Kathy Zimmerman from Spring 2005 Interweave Knits
-Yarn: Cascade 220 in color 8013 (substituted for Classic Elite Skye Tweed)
-Skeins: 3 and 3/5
-Needles: size 7 and 8 bamboo
-Start to finish: October 7 - November 1
-For: My Dad (Christmas)
Notes: I made the second smallest size (45" chest). The finished vest only measures 43" so my gauge was a bit off which is ok...it still falls within the range Mum said would be acceptable for paternal wearables. Aside from the fairly minor fiasco with the neck cables, this was a fun and easy pattern to knit. You have to love those cables!
Now on to other things...
