A picture tells more than a thousand words

This picture is supposed to tell you that my Deep-V Argyle Vest is finished! Alles klar! Tout pret! Helt färdig! I will publish a better photo later. I promise. The yellow thing you see in my hands is the beginning of the Ferragamo-bag from the Fake-a-gamo KAL.



I'm using Garnstudio's Muskat, an Egyptian mercerised cotton, on 5,0 mm (US 8) needles. The instructions recommended a similar yarn, but using US 9 needles. One triangel is 11,5 cm (4,5'') long and 8 cm (3,15'') high and according to the instructions it should be 5'' and 3''. Not bad, right? I'm very happy the way the yarn look, and this is a fun pattern to knit. I'm so ssatisfied that I will go right to Maria's yarn and buy the missing 10 or so skeins!


I have one comment on the pattern. It is recommended to twist the 'yarn overs' before knitting them purlwise to avoid holes. I would like to add that yarn-overs on the left side respectively the right side of the triangel's center should be twisted in opposite ways. It's a very small detail, but I think it looks better that way!

Has anyone an idea of where to find nice leather details?

Tack! Det ska komma en bild. Bilden jag lagt ut okynnestog M, och jag har bara inte tagit mig tid att posera snyggt i bra ljus. Ett sånt mästerverk förtjänar ju en bra bild! ;)

Ciao bella! Har du stickplaner för morgonkvällen? Funderar på att ge västen en chans till imorrn på Gino's. Vill du hänga med?
