Lots of stitches using sock yarn...
Yarn: Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn, 70% Wool, 30% Nylon, Coloway #S233
Needles: Size 2 (2.75mm and 3mm)
Pattern: Olivia, from Noro Catwalk by Jenny Watson Designs, Book 1.
Comments: The shoulders are slightly extended on this pattern--I understand bigger shoulders are coming back! I really like the nicely fashioned neckline.
I stopped the lower edge ribbing at 4," rather than the 4-3/4" called for in the pattern because I was concerned that the knitting might puff out a little after the ribbing and at the wrong spot for my body. I'm wondering now if I should have carried the ribbing up further and made it an empire look. But this way it give me room to layer it over a shirt.When I reached the area just above the body where I had to add another ball of yarn to proceed toward the shoulders, I tried to match each side at least color wise.
However, the vest does match the socks I made last year:Still knitting...
