Ivy League Vest Ideas


Did you see this free pattern on Knitting Daily. Check it out here.

I have lots on the needles but new yarn is arriving daily and I've been looking for interesting new projects maybe even as a class. Here are three options that I found...

#1: O Wool Legacy: A dk weight yarn from our friends at O-Wool. Great yardage (over 200+ yards) per skein. Pretty colors


#2: Spud and Chloe Sweater. Love this new yarn from BLue Sky Alpacas. It's machine washable and you know with little ones I worry more about spit up on my clothes than on their clothes sometimes. So I too need machine washable sweaters.

#3: Mission Fall 136 (a DK version of the fabulous 1824 wool). Great color selections and great value.

Help me choose an option for a store sample and win a $25 gift certificate for Stitch DC. Just leave a comment by Tuesday 7/21 close of business EST. Random Generator will select one winner to be announced Wednesday.

I'm feeling option #2 - more machine washable ideas :)

I feel like the Mission Falls may pill more than you'd like on a colorwork item, so I'd vote for the Blue Sky as well.

I vote for the Spud and Chloe. Love this yarn! And I think it will hold up pretty well.

Personally, I don't have to worry about spit up. I would pick the wool legacy for the colors.

Weird, my comment last week didn't post. Anyway I voted for the o-wool b/c I like the orangey-pumpkiny brownish color - looks like a good "pop". What did you decide?
