Gromit

Primary knitting completed on Kaino vest

Today I finished knitting the right front of the Kaino vest, designed by Norah Gaughan in the Berroco book Vol. 1.  All that remains is the cap sleeves. Hurrah. I made it in Berroco Ultra Alpaca, color #6202. Hopefully I will do the finishing by the end of the weekend and be wearing it next week. Whew. I have so many projects I want to finish and make by the end of the year.

Here are pictures of the vest on the Berroco website. It is described as, "A long vest with ribbed shawl collar and rolled diminutive sleevecap is knit in Ultra Alpaca." The model in the picture is 5'10" tall, size 6 and wears the 34" size vest. I'm also 5'10" but I think I'm size 12, and I made the 38" vest. I will probably make the obi, Kaiju, also that is shown in the picture.
