This week I alternated between 2 projects... one of them is going to be a tank done in Tapestry Green 100% silk in 8/2 size thread, and I had to quadruple the strands just to be able to work it up. I didn't bother to take a pic, because its only 5" long... not much to look at, but OMGoodness its sooo soft... my hands are itching to do a marathon to finish it.. but I have a deadline on another project... and with that I had to put it aside.
The deadline project is a vest, which is based on one of my flash back projects.. the Weekend Sweater done in September '06. The Weekend Sweater was done in Caron Simply Soft in the round, but decided to work the vest with Aunt Lydia's crochet thread - size 10 (doubled). I started the project off by doing bottom-up front panel up to the bust (switching between the black and white crochet thread creating the haphazard stripes).... and now I'm working the back, which I continued from the top and worked down the left side, that results in a vertical sc pattern, so with that I will seam just one side. Right now with it pinned up its about 17" long and a 29" circumference. I have about 3" left then I can move on to armhole shaping and hope to finish it this weekend. Working this project has my mind screaming to do a strapless mini dress along the same lines.... so stay tuned.
