Day 19, 2015 Before and After

 Front and back of easiest gansey vest out there....done. Seaming....are you kidding? 
I'm going to con AL or Karen into doing the seaming for me.  Nantasket is a free Berocco pattern, without the sleeves. 
Yarn Cascade 220. 
I found the directions magical. 
That is, I just did what they said without thought and voila!  it worked. 



As for my next cast on, I woke up and in typical fashion, changed my mind. 

In fairness to me, I did say I wanted to knit a snood this winter.  

So I think the snood will come before the shawl and after the socks ...
the socks that I cast on last night
after the gansey vest 
before I went to bed
and after I finished watching those Football games that have absolutely no bearing on my heart.

The pretty blue vest... waiting for someone to kindly seam it up... is great knit. Well done! Wow, look at that stash of pinks!! What color are your new cast-on socks???

I'm afraid I knew that football outcome was coming. I'm afraid I know the outcome of the Superbowl--to the point that I don't think I will watch it. I think I will tend to my knitting!! Your knitting appears to be going super well and is beautiful.

Great job on the vest. I detest seaming and try to knit in the round as much as I can. I think this vest could easily be knit in the round and have a 3 needle bind off at the shoulders.

That vest is such a pretty blue. Good luck on getting someone to seam it. I've only knit in the round because I don't like seaming. As for football, I loved the game. Since we are former Washingtonians for nearly 30 yrs, of course we rooted for Seattle. What an exciting (for us) 2nd half. Now they'll be coming to Phoenix for the Super Bowl, but even though we are only 20 miles away, we will not be going. Too expensive and too many people!

I thought that was a lot of pink for it to be your stash;)

How lucky to have someone who will seam for you. If I'm in the right mood I don't mind it but most of the time I hate it too
I want to dive into those pink yarns. I'd be getting out the credit card. It's a good thing I don't have a LYS.

Nothing wrong with changing your mind!

casting on frenzies are what it's all about!!! Lovely that you have many projects swirling in your mind and on your needles.

I have a blue sweater stretched out on a wood table, too! Great crafting minds. . .
