The Ashby Vest ~ guest blogger Andee

I have successfully turned the Ashby Shawl into a vest!


It even has pockets.




The yarn I used is The Fibre Company's Canopy Worsted. I used the colorway Orchid. The base is 50 % baby alpaca, 30% merino, 20% viscose bamboo.  This is the second time I have worked with this yarn and I really love it!  I am so pleased with how this vest came out. I do have enough yarn left to make sleeves, but I prefer it just the way it is.

Once again it has been great knitting along with all you wonder people. Now what to cast on next????
