I love it I love it I love it!

Pattern: Deep V Argyle Vest from http://www.eunnyjang.com/knit/
Yarn: Rowan Pure Wool DK in Snow (3 balls) and Coal (5).
Start: September 7th
Finish: September 15th
Modifications: I bound off an extra 3 stitches on each armhole because many people complained of the shoulders being too wide
The black yarn bled like crazy. My fingernails looked like they belonged to a hobo for a week.

I finally learned how to pick up and knit properly. Turns out I’ve been doing it wrong for three years. I had been inserting the needle under one leg of the stitch instead of stabbing it right into the stitch.

I’ve already cast on for Kate Gilbert’s Equestrian Blazer and a pair of monkey socks.
