i'm making progress on my vest (sweater vest). i am not up to the point where i have to cast off for the armholes. i'm making the front in this lovely blue speckled wool (which i got over the holidays in Boston!!) & i'm making the back from plain dark blue wool to match the darkest blue on the front panel. i'm pretty pleased with it so far... now to figure out the armholes... hmmmm!!!
