Tweedy Vest Update

The Back is complete! And here is the Front.

You can really see the texture of the rib in this picture, I'm pleased. I'm about to shape the neckline and armholes. I tried to knit more of it at our knitting gathering the other night, but I have a hard time counting, drinking and chatting all at the same time. I need to concentrate. I can only knit straight forward items at the bitching events.

Considering I'm only knitting and hour a night, I figure the blocking will be complete by the weekend. Then on with the ribbing and short rows... A great "Thanks" goes out to ruffles ruffles, otherwise I would have to learn all about short rows!

I need to make one of those ruffles scarves, because the two times I've attempted short rows, it's been a total disaster!
