finish that vest, though it was two days later than intended. Ever since, my husband has worn it each day. There will most certainly be more vests on my needles for him in future. I've thought about this one in particular, but before I jump into yet another garment, I needed to make something small, purely for fun with no timeline.
Cirilia's book at Rhinebeck 2014, where she autographed it for me. Ever since, I have meant to delve into it more. Of course there are the hip patterns, but the essays she included are even more interesting to me right now. So I have been reading it cover to cover, while I simultaneously knit her L'Arbre Hat as part of the Fringe Hatalong No. 2.
Jill Draper Makes Stuff Mini Empire. As the ball band puts it, this yarn is made from sheep to skein in the US, mainly right here in upstate NY. If I didn't know any better, I would assume this springy Rambouillet wool was actually cotton. It has that kind of feel to it, though it's more pleasurable to knit, with more give, than any cotton I've worked with. The stitch pattern stands out beautifully and seeing it appear has given me such a rush.
