There is progress, but it's very slow. I tested up the squirrel grid for my fair aisle vest in some worsted weight acrylic so see how it looks in the real world. I think it'll do just fine. I've sent away for the colour wool for the actual vest and am waiting patiently for it's arrival. I'm working the vest in fingering weight yarn and it's taking FOREVER!!!! Most of the materials I work in are fast finish deals, but this teensy yarn width takes an excruciatingly long time to work up anything bigger than a sock.
So I'll try to stay patient until I can finish it up and wear it.
I must admit I really am enjoying the idea of creating my own unique kitschy vintage vests. Who knows what's next....... maybe dragons?
