The Latest Project
I've had the pattern earmarked for two years, and the yarn in my closet for nearly a year, so this week at long last, I started the Ivy League vest from IK Winter 2007.
I'm using Knit Picks Palette, in the same colours that Glenna used in her Ivy League last year. I liked the way her colour choices turned out, and Palette is such a wonderfully affordable yarn substitution.
This will be my first project with steeks, and my first full-blown Fair Isle project, though I've done lots of stranded colourwork before. I'm struggling with tension a little bit, but hoping that blocking will flatten everything out, and also take care of the rolling on the edge of the corrugated rib. Wishful thinking? I hope not!
The colours are pretty close to reality it that last photo. So far so good. Onward.
