Knitting Weekend

This weekend, with Tyler out of town on an expedition, I've gotten a lot of knitting done. I cast on yesterday for Dr. G's Memory Vest by Kristen Kapur. I took a few photos this morning when the light in my apartment was at its best, but I've knit much more on it since then. I love me a new project. This project supports Alzheimer's and dementia research, so I don't feel bad about starting it now, even though I have a load of WIPs waiting all around the apartment for my attention.

This is a much quicker knit than most of the other
things I've got going, especially the lace-weight number which is a secret surprise to be revealed later. (It's already on Ravelry, though.) I'm using Elsebeth Lavold's Classic AL (50/50 baby alpaca and merino) which I got on closeout from WEBS, and which I highly recommend because it is SO SMOOTH AND SOFT AND PRETTY.

I'm thinking I'll knit through this really quickly and then finish up some of the other things that have been hanging around. Maybe while wearing my new vest!

Dude! You have a blog! THANK YOU!!! I freakin HATE reading Live Journal. Anyway, I haven't purchased yarn for my Memory Vest yet, since I have a room of yarn, which includes enough of at least two or three candidates for the project. Anyway, I'll be watching your progress on this one.
