Ready for a new Yarn

It's finally finished. A quick, easy knit that took longer than it should due to me not reading the directions correctly, running out of yarn & joining a bag swap that took priority. But it's finished, just in time for the cooler weather & I'm really happy with it. This would be a great stash buster project...maybe multi coloured next time? I knit 2 yarns together, swapping one when I felt like it. I wasn't too concerned about gauge, as this changed throughout; but for the style I wanted, a gauge that was "close enough" was fine.

If anyone is interested...the shawl pin is from Katherine Kowalski, she has a website at & an etsy shop.

So glad you found some more yarn and were able to get the vest finished. I love the colours you used.

Looks really nice! From this distance, it even appears quite similar in colour and texture to the original's Rainbow wool.

That looks absolutely lovely. Gorgeous colours of blue, gray and off-white. It's a pity everyone is too shy to model their finished objects!
