Well, I ran out of yarn for my Hobo Bag strap so it has to be put on hold until I get more in the mail from Knit Picks. Oh well. After digging through my WIPs I decided it's back to work on the Wall Street Cables Vest I'm knitting for my husband. It actually was supposed to be a wedding anniversary gift last year, but my fear of cables and making a man's garment in DK weight yarn stopped me.
Please excuse the quality of this picture as it's a photo of a Xerox copy from a book.
Meanwhile, Dan's wearing his only vest everyday, (yes, even in the summer as the A/C at his work makes it quite chilly for my tropical blooded hubbie) and he's getting a little bored of it, not to mention it could use a wash. So, I jumped in and guess what? The pattern is pretty simple actually, and the cables not a problem. Yes, the DK weight yarn still means this will take me a while, but I have about 2 months to finish before this year's wedding anniversary.
Above is my progress so far and I am pleased with the definition this merino yarn is giving to the cables. Why was I so afraid of them? Seems rather silly now. What projects are you working on this WIP Wednesday?
