Yarn Along: possibilities

I'm savoring A Room with a View and planning to delve into this library book my friend recommended as well.
 This pound of wool/mohair fiber is spinning up beautifully.  It's not exactly consistent, but somehow that makes it all the more appealing to me.  I'm trying to come up with a pattern for it.  My heart is set on making a garment for myself, which will mean some sort of vest or colorwork sweater.
I'm considering making the Loro Vest, so that if I run out of handspun, the back could be commercial yarn.  That could either look amazing or ridiculous.  I've also thought about making a good old L√©ttlopavesti.  The Moto Vest could work too.
If all else fails, I know I could make an amazing garment for one of the kids.

Your hand spun is beautiful. I think it will make a great vest. And it's in one of my favorite colors too!

Such a lovely hand spun! :) I've always wanted to learn to spin, but I've neither the time nor the resources at the moment, so I'll live vicariously through you. Have fun deciding on a pattern! :)

Room with a View is one of my favorite books of all time. You should definitely check out the movie too -Helena Bonham Carter was so young and perfect. Here's to the eternal Yes!

Oh, I just love the movie too. It is so well done! When I saw that they had included the chapter titles I was completely thrilled.
