Prototype, or One Last One

I was able to get my vests in the mail yesterday.

I had last bits of several colors of lopi-type yarn. Surely enough to make one more little vest.

On a wing and a prayer, I put together this little number.

So, what do you think?

Me either. But I believe the design has potential.

Initially, I thought that I would just be all random and all, then sensibility kicked in. I had just a couple of yards of the really nice yellow and the equally nice cranberry so I got a little less random and a little more formal and went for symmetry.

The back shows the issues that developed from my initial randomness.

I'm not crazy about the very wideness of the pink. (FWIW, that pink color came from overdyeing almond wool with grape Kool-ade, I think!)

I'm not all that crazy about the seaming either. I should have cast on provisionally.

And that's why this is only a prototype. And why I took photos. I will learn from this one and go for something that I can share pattern-wise at a later date.

The one thing that I did that I really like, though, is the scoopedness of the neckline (rather than the boat-neck that I used on the other three sweaters for Children In Common).

I think this will make the sweater easier to get on and more comfortable to wear.

I will definitely incorporate this neckline into the final product.

And on another note, I got this in my email yesterday:

Hello! My name Elena and me of 27 years. I was very much interested with your structure on a dating site and I to wish to get acquainted with you. If you has interested, you can write on my e-mail: address deleted . In the following letter I could tell about myself and send the photos. I hope you will give me chance and I shall like you!!!

Labels: , ,

So, how soon will you be dating again? Can't wait to hear about it!
I hope you and Elena will be very happy together. She sounds nice.
If you sent that sweater, they'd never lose the child who got it on a playground!
