Stay tuned... I'll keep you posted on my progress. I'm anxious to get this done so I can start the Takoma KAL right after Christmas. No rest for the weary - but I love knitting so much, it's never wearisome anyway.

You all know about Carnation Pink (or many of you do anyway). It's the first garment I've created on my own that I plan to release as a pattern. The vest features bulky yarn in a figure-skimming fit, which allows a larger woman to wear a chunky sweater without looking chunky herself. It also ensures a faster knit - I made mine in just a couple of weeks. The vest is adorned in strong, vertical cables that give a pretty, slimming effect. The handsewn zipper closes the deal - and don't worry, it's not hard to do.
