finished!


cabled vest, originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

So it's all done. Only that last cable is going the wrong way. As specified in the pattern, but not pictured in the magazine. Boo. Oh well, I'm going to see if I can ignore it and if not then I might try to fix it. I'm just worried the fixing will look worse than leaving it as is.

It's super sunny out so the colour should actually look a lot more like it does in this picture:

but I wanted to show the whole thing and since my roommate has already left for the day I had to find ways to take pictures of myself!

Notes:

Pattern: Debbie Bliss Cabled V-Neck Vest from the Fall 2008 Debbie Bliss Knitting Magazine
Size: 32-34 (S)
Yarn: Berroco Peruvia Quick
Needles: US 13 and 11 straights
Mods: Accidentally used the measurements for picking up sleeves from second size up, but it was a happy accident, I think. Grafted the collar at the back rather than binding off and sewing together.

All in all I'm really happy with this garment. I am mad at the magazine for very clearly (italics were used!) indicating the change in cables when, upon close inspection, the garment pictured does not change cable directions at all. But I'll get over it, and I do LOVE the hand and warmth of the Berroco Peruvia Quick. I would definitely recommend it for a bulky/super bulky project.
