A week's progress

So. Even though I had decided I wouldn't make any more garments I went ahead with this pattern the Vine Leaf vest from Classic Elite. It's a free pattern. I'm using some Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece that I've had in stash for a while. I got the yarn at a swap meet at a really cheap price. Anyway, the pattern is easy to memorize and I am almost finished with the back. The actual color is a lot more lime than what you see here but you know I'm not too successful with my photos.

I also got started on a scarf. It's based on the same pattern I used for the Scrolls socks that I posted a couple of weeks ago.

You might recall that I was speculating about how that pattern would look as a scarf since I was very excited at how the reverse looked. I didn't realize at the time that the pattern I was using for the socks and the pattern for this scarf are the same, except one is worked in the round and the other is worked flat. I do like how the scarf is coming out, even though I'm not using the beads that the scarf pattern suggests. I am using the yarn the pattern calls for, Schaefer Susan, a 100% mercerized cotton that is very pleasant to use.

And I finished the Worm Scarf. This one should only have taken a day or so but other things happened. You know how that is.

You've been quite busy! I saw the Vine Leaf vest finished at another blog. It looks very nice. So there was a scarf already with the scrolls pattern? I like stitch pattern which are nice to look at on both sides.

The worm scarf is quite cute and very colorful. The vest looks as though it is progressing very nicely and quickly too.

Good to see that scrolls pattern from the back. All that rich texture just makes my fingers want to dig into yarn. thanks for the inspiration.
