|Progress as of Jan 22nd|
It is called the Heather Hoodie Vest, and though I do not usually wear vests I thought it would be a good way to use up that spare ball of Eco wool.
I'm using a size 10 which gives me a slightly looser gauge. So though I'm knitting for the size 35", I might get a 38" or so, which would make it an ideal gift for my Sister in Law.
I'm hoping to get most of the seaming done today and then have all of Thursday to work the "voluminous hood."
My mom is trying (desperately) to talk me into knitting sleeves. She says it "looks stupid with a hood and no sleeves." And maybe she's right, I don't know. She even offered to buy me a spare ball of yarn- until I told her how much it would cost! At any rate, sleeves aren't happening. I saw some neat projects where people did add sleeves but I just won't have enough yarn. Even if I drop the hood in favor of a shawl collar. So this sweater will be just like the pattern, and hopefully it turns out cute.

Right front needs one more repeat.
