Vest for Fall

It seems quite strange to knit a wool-blend vest in August in Florida, but I was hot and restless, and wanted to live in a dreamworld of autumn forests and crisp air.

I bought some Vintage yarn, intending to make a cardi, but couldn't come up with a design that inspired me, so I knitted two vests instead.

Here is the first one: a golden color, in homage to Autumn.

I made up the Fair Isle as I went along, throwing in an occasional garter row for texture. I like it, and now am impatiently waiting for some cooler weather!
