chocolate and honeycomb

15 June 2008

There was an element of blood-sweat-and-tears in this vest.  I cast on for the wrong size and had to rip out and start again.  Then I lost count of the rows, and had to start again, again.  And then I lost count again, and had to rip back halfway….

Anyway… It’s done now and I reckon it looks all right eh?   Sorry about the slightly blurry photos – it’s grey and rainy here and the light is difficult.

The yarn is Griganasco  Champagne (75% wool, 25% silk) and the pattern comes from  Knitty. More pictures over the jump.
