Trinity Vest

I finally finished the Trinity Vest from A Fine Fleece.





This was my cable project and, as always, I learned more than just how to do cables. I learned how to make button holes, pick up stitches for edging around the arm holes, how to add a crocheted edging to firm up the back neckline... And, it fits! And it's pretty. And it's made from yarn I spun for the Tour de Fleece, graciously provided by two of my favorite sheep, Boudreaux the Biter and Buddy.

I have to finish my socks that I've been working on since summer (!) and then I'm jumping into a new sweater for myself - a remake of the special Punkin' sweater, but that's a whole 'nother story.

It looks really nice, and it's neat to know whose fleece you're wearing. I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

Your vest is beautiful! I really do need to venture into knitting something besides shawls, scarves and blankets...

Your vest is beautiful...I just love the color. It looks like it will so soft and warm. I think it's so cool when you can create something from your own animals.

I've never attempted anything with cables....I find them very intimidating even when reading the pattern :)

The vest is simply stunning. It is a work of art and a wearable treasure. The buttons were a great choice. Wear it in good health with great memories of where the wool came from and how it got to be so near to your heart. Alice K

I saw the link to this post at the end of your most recent one and realized two things: 1) I have this book now, and 2) I'm on a "vest kick" right now. Therefore, I think I must knit this vest next, right after I finish Talia!
