You may recall that during the edging fest for Daughter's stole I started another project. I wanted something that I could work on without having to pay that much attention to. I made Daughter a vest out of some silk/rayon that I got from Interlacements last year at Stitches Midwest. The knitting went quickly and easily and now all I have to do is sew up the seams and put on the edgings. First I sew up the side seams.

Then I sew up the shoulder seams.

Then I look at what I've done and start crying.

That would be a full twist in the right front between the armhole and the shoulder. I have seen many things with a mobius in the design, but never have I seen a vest front with an intentional twist. It's shocking how creative I actually am. If it weren't for the fact that Daughter is one of the pickiest dressers ever I would just throw a matching twist in the other side and call it a design feature. It almost, sort of, perhaps, looks like a cable.

Excuse me while I go and unseam my mindless knitting project for a while.

I guess that there is such a thing as mindless knitting that is a little too mindless. It's a gorgeous colour, I hope she loves the vest
