Knitting

I just finished this vest from an old, old pattern. It uses two threads, each on an alternate row. By working on a circular needles, you just knit one row/one thread, then go back to the beginning and repeat with the other thread. It made the Boucle' go further and really features it. The other yarn was a plain navy one.

It was fun to knit-I like unusual ways of doing things. The closure is a hair ornament the just slides out of my hair, so it's nice to find a use for it. I bought it at a Craft Fair. The model is my dress form.

What a great sounding method to knit it! Smashing colourways too.

This vest is lovely Sandy, no wonder you are pleased with it. Great colours, and as you say, an excellent way to extent a pretty yarn.
