December!!!

Woo-hoo! I have completed the 52 week challenge!

Here is my December project:
001

Project: Fair isle vest - #14 from the fall 2007 issue of Knit Simple magazine
Cast on: 7/18/09
Completed: 12/19/09
Yarn: Tatamy Tweed DK in Navy, Cherry and Sea Blue
Little Lehigh Pebbles DK in First Tooth (same yarn base, but just a color line for children - I needed the off-white!)

Needles: Knit Picks options circulars: US 4 for the ribbing and I-cord finishing and US 5 for the fair isle
Yardage: 580 yards (calculated by weighing)

This was my first big fair isle project and I'm really happy with how it turned out. It was challenging, but a lot of fun to knit. And I'm so glad that I had the 52 week challenge to motivate me to finish it by the end of the year!

P.S. I still have my Miss Marple mystery socks on the needles and really hope to finish these by the end of the month too, but these will just be a bonus project.

nice work!
now the key question - does the vest fit?
i'm always trepidatious [is that a word?]
