New Year, New Project

So here is the progress picture for my January project - cast on Thursday night. It will be a cardigan or a vest - I haven't decided yet. Working in once piece from the bottom up. The variegated yarn is a hand dyed wool mill end bought many years ago at the late, great Straw Into Gold retail store. The coordinating solid is Crystal Palace Sierra.
I'm suspect this won't qualify as a project made from Crystal Palace yarn, but we'll let Susan make that call. The label is pictured above. A clue as to just how long I've owned this yarn - $21.50 for 1.8 lbs of hand dyed chunky wool - that's about $.75 per ounce!
