Caldwell Vest

 The vest turned out really well. And with contrasting color stripes at the back, I had just the right amount of yarn to complete it with ease. The pattern is very well written and easy to follow. The yarns I used were Knit Picks Wool of Andes Tweed (dove heather) and some leftover Araucania Nature Wool solids. Needle sizes were 4 and 4.5 mm.
  This is my fourth sweater for my husband and I think I finally have a winner. I got my husband to choose the everything _ the yarn, the pattern and the buttons and this time, I was a bit more experienced to knit to the right size.
It was done some days ago but it took me this long to post as we had a load shedding induced computer crash this week. And we have some google services blocked in our country so while I can upload pictures, I cannot view them.( Hopefully this post is published right). Same goes for other blogspot blogs, those take ages to load and viewing experience is quite useless without the pictures.


  1. The vest looks beautiful! Very clever to combine the yarns so well.

    I hope your computer issues are resolved soon. I always look forward to your posts and pictures :)

  2. It is fantastic, I can tell why he'd like to wear it!
