Honeycomb is Blocking

So, I pinned the vest down for blocking last night. The night before I finished the front and had to redo the back because I had done the decreases incorrectly along the neckline. I didn't even notice it until I was getting ready to three-needle bindoff the shoulders together. I must have really been deeply involved in Dancing With the Stars to not have noticed that error because it was so obvious! You can't really tell in this photo, but there should be a slight U-shaped scoop on the back with the straps on the same edges as the armholes. Luckily, the fix wasn't too complicated.

Honeycomb Vest Back

Finished the back of the vest yesterday afternoon. I think I'll have time to cast on for the front later today. The back took a little bit longer than I anticipated because I was using a cable needle for the stitch pattern most of the time. However, Once I figured out how to forego the cable needle, the project sped up.

The Nines

B and I spent the weekend at the Nines downtown, so I didn't have much time for knitting, though I did bring it with me.

I started a vest last night. I had a bunch of yarn I got on sale from Fabric Depot. Originally, I had wanted to make this Badia vest from Berroco, but I decided to look through patterns from Knitty and remembered that I had always wanted to make Honeycomb from last spring's issue. I love the texture created from the stitch pattern.
