Saving the World

Isn't that what "Eco" friendly is all about?  I did my part... I finished the Eco Vest.  Somehow, I don't think that's what the designer had in mind, but it's my story and...
It's lovely:
Totally re-cycled yarn!  The light lavender is the infamous Mongolian Cashmere that has crossed the Atlantic 4 times, and will make one more crossing to arrive "home".  It's doubled in this pattern, and super cuddly! (I, ahem, wore it last night to an outdoor concert - toasty!)  The darker color is Angora, and very cuddly, except when it's right-next-to-cashmere.  This yarn used to be the sleeve of a sweater.  Now a vest, because the sweater was too warm.
It wasn't a problem... nothing to tell, moving along...
Started a "mystery shawl"!  First two rows look great!  I mean, who knows?  I like the yarn and the beads.

Yarn:  Angora by Elsebeth Lavold
Aran / 10 ply, 60% Angora, 20% Wool, 20% Nylon  91 yards 
Fingering / 4 ply, 100% Cashmere  200 yards  


  1. Very nice. I am a vest lover myself.

  2. I love it! I have been looking for a vest pattern for some time, this is perfect. Only have to finish some large projects first :)

  3. Very pretty and it must be super soft. I love vests, they are very usable part of my wardrobe because they are easy for combining, and the thing I like the most about them is that they keep me warm but my arms are more "free" than in a sweater.

  4. i was shown the little layered cardigan which is my oh my so so adorable. you are a knitting genius. i would like to knit pretty like you one day :)


Go ahead! Tell me what's on your mind.
