Prince of Wales Finished



BIL's vest is finished. "Prince of Wales" from Meg Swansen's "Sweater's From Camp", done in Katia Mississippi 4 cotton/acrylic. I'm very pleased with the way the cotton worked in FairIsle. The gauge was right on, and the stitches are very even. I did an enclosed armhole ribbing as shown on the KidsKnit web site and was happy with the results. It was a little puffy but blocked out nicely. Used the cross stitch method on the neckline as I was afraid it would be too thick otherwise. Time will tell how the cotton will behave with wear. I'm happy, another bag of yarn used up, another project done! Next one will be the "Land and Sea" pullover from Cottage Craft, already started.
