Inspiration Monday - One Sided

It's here! Thank you all for your patience. The Spunky Eclectic One Sided Vest pattern is now available. Of course, I am so excited, I couldn't resist making it the feature for today.

The classic styling, with one diamond cable that goes up one side (front and back), makes it a great unisex pattern. Knit waist shaping for a woman, or without for a man. Because few like seaming, it's worked in the round up to the arm holes. 

Yarn ideas? Cascade's Eco Wool, 128 Superwash, or Baby Alpaca Chunky. Malabrigo Chunky is another fabulous option.

Not only did today bring the One Sided Vest, but Dream in Color Starry and Classy arrived!

I ADORE this yarn. It is so incredibly beautiful, and yummy squishy soft. 

Susan made a lovely pair of socks for a very lucky person on her holiday list out of Starry.

Notice how the sparkles end up adding just the perfect amount of glitz - subtle, yet eye catching.

I've been knitting away like crazy on my Mini Mochi hat. The pattern is addictive. I've ended up knitting well past bedtime just so that I could see how the next set of colors would play out. Got to the crown shaping last night.

I'll leave you today with a very special treat. Emily and baby Samuel came to visit us last week. He is growing so fast! And was an excellent little visitor. I think he really felt at home surrounded by all the yarn.
