I finished the vest and finally have photos

This is going to be a short update with pictures of the finished Strickwear, merging colors vest.

It was cool enough today to wear a turtle-neck and wool vest out on the deck. I don't have a shirt that is exactly the right color for this vest.  Here's the back.

And behind me, you can see our newly painted deck railing. Last fall we had the flooring replaced and this summer we sanded and painted the railing ourselves. I really like the new look.

 

That's it for today, but I am thinking about doing a post on gauge swatches. My thoughts on an already much-discussed topic.

Such a beautiful color-shifting technique. Seems like a fun project, both for process and product!
