Vested Interests

My husband has a reputation among his students for his sweater vests, most of which I make for him. This is the latest.



It's a combination of the British School Slipover in Cheryl Oberle's Folk Vests, the vest template in Ann Budd's The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns and the Office Vest from Lisa Knits.
  • Yarn: Black Water Abbey 2-ply worsted in Bluestock; wonderful yarn to knit with, especially when cables are involved
  • Needles: US5 for the body and US3 for the ribbings (yes, I'm a loose knitter)

What a blessed man! Wonderful vest and no you are not loose, just relaxed.

Very nice. Have you figured out what to do with that little tiny thread yet? :0)

Beautiful vest.
I want to know what you are going to do with the sz 100 thread, too!
