Welcome back everyone!
I've been plugging away at Norah Gaughan's Deep V-Neck Vest from Knit Simple Fall 06. I'm using the Berroco Ultra Alpaca called for in the pattern. The color is Redwood Mix (6281), and it's beautiful. (Not so much in this photo.)
This vest had to be made following the enormous inspiration from Ann's Pie Man and my desire to knit something by Norah Gaughan. Plus, it spoke to the lazy knitter in me -- no cables on the back (just moss stitch) and no arms! Just perfect.
Well ... just perfect until I couldn't hit gauge no matter what size needle I used. Has that ever happened to you? Finally, I decided to go down a size and hope for the best. The measurements look good so far. I'll keep you posted!
