malabrigo mom's vest


drum roll, please... My first finished object of 2013, my Malabrigo Mom's Vest!  To be fair, 95% of this was completed in December, but it still counts, right? :-D I am on cloud nine right now, as this is by far the nicest thing I've knit for myself to date. And it all came together with no hiccups or headaches, which was the icing on the cake! The shawl collar + buttery soft Malabrigo = super comfy coziness on my neck. I am seriously considering getting my hands on some more Malabrigo and finding another shawl collar vest pattern and casting on ASAP!

Pattern: Mom's Vest by Cheryl Murray (published in KnitSimple magazine, Fall 2011, my Ravelry project page)
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted (colorway: jewel blue), used three full skeins and just dipped into a fourth
Needles: size 9 

This is also my first completed project in my love your library challenge for this year ... now I need to scour my library to choose my next project!
