Speaking of vests I've designed, here's another that I worked on this Summer. I call it "Head in the Clouds", since a 12-18 month old child will be putting their head in these clouds sometime soon. Ravelry details here.
It's made from Cascade Heritage, one of my favorite yarns for colorwork since Colinette Jitterbug. It's very reasonably priced for how much you get on a skein. This used about 2/3 skein of blue, and hardly any white.
The knitting went well, until I got the proportions a bit wacky, and had to tear it apart a couple times before it was right. Now that it's complete, and the burn of making it is over, I can't wait to see a little one wear it. One day, I might just write up the pattern.
