I did give ample bracing time by mentioning it in my last post, so there are no excuses for anyone being surprised.
Purchased from the Yahoo Yarn Co-op Group, a vest kit from Philosopher’s Wool in the “Hollyberry” colourway. I originally planned to do the Timber Frame vest (because of the nice vertical lines and because it looked fairly simple) but I’m being swayed by the Trillim/Pansy design. I’m planning on introducing waist shaping to the vest (or rather the waistcoat) simply because I have a waist and I don’t want to hide it! Any ideas on which would suit me? All suggestions will be greatfully recieved.

I’m knitting it “inside out” to help keep the yarn floats loose. I’ve tried it on and it does actually fit! There aren’t different stitch numbers for each size, you just use a larger needle. I’m not a fan of this method (normally) but for this pattern it is some what necessary because the pattern would have to be completely re-written for each size.
The yarn is some Regia striping one in wool and nylon. Helpful, aren’t I?!
