Rowan Dalesman

So it has been a while since I have done anything other than a hat or a scarf and it has been even longer since I have posted anything on MWK, but I recently came across the Rowan Dalesman book last week and was struck by two of the sweater vests in there. Since I have never made a sweater I am starting with the simpler Harrison sweater before I tackle the Fairbank.

Just finished blocking a vest I made using Shetland wool that was left over from other projects. I used a 3.25 mm needle. It was knitted in the round with steeks for the the front and arm holes. I didn't bother securing stitches but just cut the steeks open and picked up stitches for the border. It was a fun and fast knit.
