A Great In"Vest"ment

The weather is starting to turn colder, but who cares when you can don this great vest. 

It's a simple vest pattern from Plymouth Yarns. It was knit entirely in one piece and turned out to be quite simple. I love the yarn, also from Plymouth worsted, with the green, brown and black colors running throughout. 

The buttons were purchased at The Yarn Barn in Woodbridge, CT where the selection is great. 

This vest can be either dressed up with a pair of slacks or dressed down with a pair of dark or black jeans. I can see making this again with another brighter color.

Hot Sox - Part Deux

The second edition of the Hot Sox Project by Tofutsies. These colors blended together are great. They are perfect to wear with a pair of jeans and a denim shirt. 

As usual, the picture doesn't do the colors justice, but they look great. I used the pattern that came with the yarn. The only variation was that I didn't do the separate pocket for the big toe. I don't wear socks with flip flops (who does?). The pattern is a simple, easy to follow right twist, but if I were to do this again, I wouldn't continue the pattern for the heel flap. It makes casting on the gusset stitches a bear.

I can't wait for the next installment.
