Moving On

Thank you all for your suggestions and sympathy on my dye lot issue.  I may have found someone with some extra yarn in the same dye lot on Ravelry--she's not sure but we bought it from the same place around the same time, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!  In the meantime, I've moved on to a new project:

Hmm, not the best spot for a picture, but I'm lazy.

This is the Scoop Neck Vest from Blue Sky Alpacas, and I just have the back and the edgings to finish.  I modified it to knit the body in the round, and it's working up very quickly!

While I was ordering that pattern from Jimmy Beans Wool (I've never used them before--their shipping is super fast!), I picked up some Cascade Cotton Rich DK:

I'm planning on using this for the Debbie Bliss Cabled V-Neck Vest.  It's going to be a vest-filled spring, apparently!

Ooh, the Scoop Neck Vest is at the top of my queue. I got some Blue Sky cotton in a green color ("Pickle"!!) and I'm itching to start it. Yours looks like a color I would definitely wear! Please give us a review of the Cotton Rich after you've had a chance to work with it...

The new vest looks great - what a treat that it knit up so quickly. I hope the dye lots match up so you can finish the sweater.

Wow, that tank looks great. Very smart to knit it in the round; I do that whenever possible! Can't wait to see it on.

hope you're able to get the matching dyelot yarn. The vest is looking good!

I hope your contact has the dyelot you need. I'm looking forward to seeing your vests take shape. It will be nice to finish without having to knit sleeves.
