Another drive-by FO post

Home just in time for bed (after a very busy day, of course) but I couldn't resist popping in to show off today's FO.

The Tweedy vest was a web only pattern from the fall/winter 2005 issue of Knitscene Magazine. Alas, the pattern is no longer available online. Mine was made with Malabrigo Seleccion Privada K, which I picked up on sale at Coldwater this summer. The colors just happen to be the local school colors and I plan on wearing this vest to hockey games. Woot!

I love how the pattern worked up. The neckline was a mental challenge because it used short-rows to make the front of the ribbing deeper than the back of the ribbing. Unusual but I think I like it. I'm considering making another one out of the green tweed yarn I recently added to the stash.

BTW, this isn't the only FO of the week. Dancing Diva's ballet shrug is also finished but I haven't managed to snag a photo of her wearing it yet. Stay tuned for an update. Soon, I hope.

It looks a little Vikings-ish as well! It looks great on you!

Yay for finished hockey vest and warm mama!

I love it! And you wear it very, very well. It is great to find that "just right" garment!

Lovely - and you're making me grumpy. I frogged my vest from last winter. Short rows make me stupid.

Good work! An FO and Guinifer is right - it can double up for Viking games!
