Unfortunately, I have to put the vest aside & work on my other projects .... finished knitting the green cardigan & it's time for sewing up (any volunteers???) .... & up to the leg portion of Helen's 2nd sock. Will work on the sock tonight & maybe do the sewing up next weekend?

At last, my new yarn arrived & I am so glad that I bought them (as if I don't have enough in my stash). These are gorgeous - the colors & the smoothness. Oh, how lucky to find these yarn .... & I wonder how they feel when knitted up ... I really have to share this with all of you, so here they are ...Aren't they gorgeous - I bought them from The Knittery - they are the Merino 4 ply sock yarn in Berrybliss but they are not going to be socks although I also bought a set of Brittany dpns. Can't wait to use those needles but for the moment, they have to wait as I have to cast on my new project with those gorgeous yarn.
I did cast on .... the V-neck Vest from Jo Sharp's Knit Issue 1. Although the Merino is a little thinner than Jo Sharp Alpaca Silk, I managed to adjust the size of the vest & I am knitting it in the round, so no SEAMS to sew up - as many of you know how I hate sewing up! So now I have 268 sts on the needle & going round & round & round for the rib & it's coming on beautifully & the yarn is so soft & nice to knit .... take a peek ....
I can't stop knitting this & I love how the colors are turning out. I am sure I will be going back for some more of these yarn. Anyway, this is the vest that I am knitting & I know you (Cindy) are knitting it too !
