I finally got back to working on my Oatmeal Vest, dedicated to my friend Flo, who had purchased the yarn before passing away.
I tried it on the other day after clipping it together for sewing. The curled ends make it look small, but there will also be the front bands to give a little front ease as well. (Messy wool room can be seen behind me. It also doubles as a Christmas present hiding place.)
Shoulders and sides have been successfully seamed, while watching "The Cat People". I have begun picking up the armhole trim, and knitting, also in seed stitch.
After the second armhole, I just have front bands to pick up and knit followed by buttons and ends to trim. I may get to wear this next cold snap.
