Ready to Mail
I finished this sweater vest last week and plan to mail it in time for the end of April (needs to be in CA by early May) for the current campaign. I hope to finish another one before I need to mail.
The pattern is available here for the sweater version and a vest version (at the end of the pattern).
Since the pattern calls for bulky yarn knit at about 2.5 st/in, I used three strands of worsted weight singles (Patons Impressions) held together.
There are 4 50 g balls plus 3 odd balls totaling 67 g left of this stuff and frankly, though it is very nice to work with, I am sick to death of it. 100% wool, hand dyed (not by me) in a lovely shade of green.
I am offering what is left (sufficient for a double stranded vest) to a member who will use it for A4A. I'll take names at my email (abmcmanusATverizonDOTnet)until noon eastern time Sunday. I know that's only a little over 24 hours. I'd like to mail it Monday so that the knitter has time to make a vest for this campaign. US addresses only, please.
