alpaca vest

pattern: Gilmore Vest
yarn: 5 balls of Fable Handknits 100% baby alpaca in "grey"
needles: 3.5 and 4mm bamboo clover straights

Finally finished this vest! More details can be found on my blog if you're interested. I got a great deal on the yarn at pick up sticks. It was all 50% off, and it's the softest stuff I have ever knit with, so I kind of went a little crazy buying it, though I have a feeling they're all sold out of it at this point. Prices are in Canadian dollars so you should go over and check them out for all sorts of stuff. (Sorry, my little plug for pick up sticks, since I've had some really favourable experiences with them!)

And yes, I do actually wear this tacky polyester shirt!
