purchased pattern. original notes: madtosh may? tincan knitalong? see kyroli on instagram of craftstash podcast.
knit as a combo between the small and medium sizes. Strenuously blocked the lace portions, and left all pieces on Knit Picks cables throughout, thinking I may need to make additional fabric to fit. Worried it was going to be too small, as I was knitting it while loosing weight. Decided on one clasp rather than buttons, giving it a very Jane-Austen-shape and feel. Then realized the new on-clearance dress I had just purchased matched perfectly, completely on accident! got to wear to fitbloggin for the first time, and got many compliments. The madelinetosh TML was perfect, and I only used 1 1/2 skeins, so I’m thinking of making a long cowl using the same lace pattern as the vest so I’ll have another piece to enjoy along the same vein. Plus, the colorway is really perfectly me.
Wonderful project, highly recommended.
