FO: MALABRIGO "Shire Silk" Vest
Hi'ya!

So I had 4 skeins of "Simply Taupe" MALABRIGO merino worsted weight. What to do. What to do. Another scarf and hat set? Naaah. I have too many scarves OTN right now.

I found a really cute pattern in the Knit 'n' Style magazine called SHIRE SILK VEST, April 2007 Issue.

Here it is! Warm and cozy. Hunting is right around the corner, and won't I be warm with this vest over top of my jammies??!!

Brrrr. It gets cold up on Nighthawk Summit at night. It falls to 20 degrees at night even in Oct. Das jus too cold for Artlady!

I haven't blocked it yet. Blocking will tame the garter stitch neckline and the bottom edges. Perk up the pattern stitches, too. I just couldn't wait for it to block before getting it uploaded here at KH!

Did I mention: it was knit in one piece up to the armholes. That makes things go fast. The only seaming was the 3-needle bind-off for the shoulders.

It's soo pretty.

I wish I could knit something as complicated as that. I'm venturing into different stitches for now. However, I have yet to make an article of clothing. My first pair of socks is in hibernation so I'm only working on a scarf & face cloth. You ladies (& gentleman, lol) are so talented. Keep up the good work!!!!!
