I am thrilled to say that my Emily vest is done! I never thought it would dry. It’s been damp the last couple of days so that really slowed things down. The vest turned out beautifully. I enjoyed every bit of knitting this project. I totally recommend it.
The pattern is Emily by Deb Hoss. The yarn is Cascade 220 in Westpoint Blue Heather. First I must tell you that the pattern is so well written. I had no questions as I knit. That is a rare occurrence in my knitting life. I often question what the designer meant or why something is done the way they recommend. The details of the pattern made for a very well finished vest. I like being given exact numbers for picking up stitches particularly when the section is divided up ie, pick up x stitches under the arm, y stitches up to the shoulder join. It insures I do things neatly and evenly. I plan to knit another Deb Hoss pattern soon. The yarn is my go to worsted weight wool. The skeins are generous and there are many colors to chose from.
This is my final Loopy Academy project for senior year second semester. I’ve greatly enjoyed knitting along with Loopy Academy the last four years and I look forward to whatever they have planned for our next adventure.
