FO: My Spring IVY LEAGUE Vest - finally finished!
I haven't posted any FO's recently because i was busy with this project. I think it's the most difficult project i knit so far. It has Fair Isle, steeks, shaping in different places in the same time and adjusting the chart to the different shapings. I'm pretty happy with it, except for the part that my gauge went a little off and i probable shouldn't have gone up with the needle sizes. It also makes you look on the photos like you have no bust at all. So here we go:
Pattern: Ivy League Vest by Eunny Jang from IK Winter 2007.
Needles: 3.75mm and 3.00mm.
Yarn: Rowan Yorkshire Tweed 4-ply in Lustre, Graze, Dessicated (white), Blessed, Highlander and Barley. The yarn is absolutely delightful, it blocks wonderfully and is great for FI, even with the tweedy flecks of colors.

You did a great job!!

I am starting a Fair Isle (with steeks) vest class next week, can't wait! I've done steeks on Norwegian sweaters (two colors) but I've not done the Fair Isle.

You have inspired me!
