You May Be Right......

I might be crazy. So here is the project I'm working on:

It is the "Fair Isle" vest from Knit 2 Together by Tracey Ullman and Mel Clark. I had been thinking about doing some stranded colorwork, and I loved the bright retro colors in this design. HOWEVER....notice it is not knit in the round. So, my friends, there is the whole purling while stranding thing. Also, in a few rows they had the audacity to have three colors. Yikes. As if my newbie colorwork attempt isn't ripply and uneven enough! After trying it a couple of time, I have decided to omit the third color and I'll Swiss darn it in later. The good news: it's a vest, so no damn sleeves. Seems like it is the season of the vest....Check out Cathi's sexy and fabulous number!!
