One down...

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!

Gosh, that looks awesome. I hope you take pictures of the person modeling it! I'd like to see how it looks on...I love the pic of the cables in perspective, great shot.

Very cool! I've been eyeing that pattern for my dad as well. Great job!

It's beautiful - your dad's gonna love it!
