Just In Time .....

...... as the weather is cooling down. We had an exceptionally hot summer & the heat dragged on to autumn. It's only starting to cool down now, the last month of autumn, although we are having a sunny day (29C) tomorrow.

I was able to wear my newly finished vest .....
.... it's the Matilde's Vest.  I started this vest a month ago but kept putting it down to work on other projects. It's a simple pattern from the bottom up & knitted in the round. A 3 needle bind off for the shoulders & it's done.  I love projects like this as there's not much finishing, except for the armholes & neck.

The vest is knitted in Malabrigo sock yarn & it's just so soft & warm. I am so in love with Malabrigo & can't seem to have enough of it. I think I will be ordering more.

I will post more pictures of the vest in action as I have to run now ..... I have a class to teach.

What a pretty pattern! The neckline is perfect and I love the garter stitch edging. I am knitting your Treasure Lace pattern in Malabrigo sock yarn for my sister.
