2011 Prime Time KAL - Jan 2011 - In progress -Brenda (Owlsrook)
January 4, 2011 - January Progress Photo - Men's Aran Vest - Cast on New Years Eve and started knitting Jan 1st and finished the back piece today. This is a pattern featured in the February 2010 Knit N' Style Magazine.
I am using Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool, which is nice to work with and defined the cables well. I am using circular needles - Size 4.5mm for the ribbing and 5.5MM for the pattern portion. It is a fairly quick knit, with simple but nice cables patterning.
This is being knit for my husband who has been requesting and Irish Sweater and Vest for sometime. I am still designing the sweater, so doing this quick vest first.
