FO-Steeked Vest
This was knit with 10 balls of KnitPicks Wool of the Andes (never again!) in Amber Heather and Cloud. It took about 2 months, and there are a few details that could have been a bit neater, but not planning the thing at all before I started probably has something to do with that. I steeked the armholes and neck opening. I love steeks. I did an attached i-cord around the v-neck and armhole openings. I probably won't do that again because it just wasn't as neat as I'd hoped. But, all in all, I'm very happy with the results and it turned out like I wanted it to.

I still have some ends to weave in, but that can wait. Right now I need a strong cup of tea.

Thanks! I want to do something intricate next, like from Meg Swansen's Sweaters from Camp. The only book that I work patterns from, so that should say something. I'm going to ask them to knit the Gordian Knot sweater.

Thanks! It was not that soft, and it pilled a bit. Not noticeably so, but, then again, I almost never stand behind myself when I say I'll never use a particular wool again. I'll most likely break and use it again.

Looks great!

A tip on the attached i-cord. If you want it to curl less, do another one between the one you made and the sweater--another EZ trick.

It looks great. I agree that an applied I-cord edging is a difficult thing to do neatly.
