After finishing a few UFO's last week, I gave myself permission to cast on a new project in Skye Tweed.
This new design has a strong hold on me. For the past few years we have watched my father's memory decline. Last year he was diagnosed with Vascular Dementia. Once a world expert in his field of microbiology, he now has trouble remembering the simplest details of his life. Feeling helpless to do much to ease his struggle, I have turned to knitting, the craft that brings me peace and has also allowed me to contribute to charities that I care about. I will write this unisex vest pattern once the knitting is complete. All proceeds from its sale will go to Dementia research. I expect to have the pattern done by mid September, just in time for holiday knitting.
