Old, Old WIPs
Thanks to the inspiring folks who are participating in Vestvember I pulled out a very old WIP and finished it. Today was a good day to finish this vest since it also happens to be green day in Color Week.
I've named this vest "Wood Hollow" after the street I grew up on. Our house on Wood Hollow Road was a very special place. It was filled with the warm smells of my mother's wonderful cooking, the sounds of my father's beloved classical music, beautiful family antiques, pots of my parents germinating hybrids (rhododendrons and daylilies), orchids & clivia in full bloom, my mothers quilts, cats and of course friends and family. Outside the house was surrounded by beautiful gardens. Whenever I went to visit, I would arrive to find both of my parents working in the garden. Inside there was often an apple pie waiting. This cozy green vest would fit right in on Wood Hollow Road.
I'm in the process of writing the pattern. I can't say how long it will take before it is ready for publication. But hopefully not too long.
The yarn is Cascade 220 worked on US 5 & 6 needles.
