Today I begin what will probably be an all day possibly all night process. Remember that giant pile of chocolate wool? It's actually a Lonicera. This is a giant sweater vest designed by Kristen Kapur that has taken me forever to knit. I had a couple of false starts and a yardage scare, but I am happy to say that after a month and a half it is finally blocking.
Even though I found myself cursing it often, the construction of this pattern is genius. You just can't see it in a pile of wet wool. And that wet wool? Yeah, it's Dragonfly Fibers Selkie -- a decadent blend of 60% wool and 40% silk. Before you get too jealous and paint me a yarn snob you should know that I don't get to keep it. This baby is going to be a show sample for Kate's booth. I'm fairly certain that she will send tons of yarn off of this alone. Not because I'm an amazing knitter but because the fabric is delicious. The color bled a little when I put it in wool wash, but nothing serious. I'd go on and on but I have no photos to back up my claims, so you'll just have to trust me until this thing finishes the epic drying that I'm sure five feet of yarn shall take.
