Berry Nice

A testament to early and late raspberries. Worth the wait!

I really like this picture - the color, the lighting, the composition. And, as I was admiring my lucky shot, I remembered a lady from Ireland who was visiting Stella a few weeks ago. I had shown her the sample for the Trinity Vest (from the Tour de Fleece) and she immediately called it blackberry stitch. After looking at a couple books, I believe blackberry stitch and trinity stitch are indeed one in the same (I'm hoping someone will correct me if I'm wrong) and why, yes, it does look just like a berry.

So, I'm 4 1/2 inches along on the vest, and as usual, learning a lot. There are three, three strand braids running up the back. Two are visible in this picture...if you know where to look. The effect of dark and light yarn on patterns is amazing.
