The complicated vest project

Thrihyrne's thistle by eccequambonum
It's not quite finished, but I'm getting pretty close! Many of you all aren't on the Book of Face, which is absolutely fine (I mostly play games) but it's become so difficult for me to post pics here in DW/LJ land. But! Ravelry has made it super easy. I uploaded 5 new pictures of this double knitted, reversible vest for my brother, and you can see the pics here! I'm going to have heaps of yarn left over. I think I may need to make one similar for me, though sized appropriately. My brother is tall and has a very broad chest and back. It's been mostly fun to work on, and I've found myself really enjoying double knitting. A couple of months ago evannichols and I even sat in bed talking about an excel program he could make up in order to make a double-knitted, reversible vest or top with a different design on each side. It'd be a nightmare to look at in terms of a charted pattern, but with only 2 colors, it could easily be made into a binary chart that he could help make.

Yes, uber geeks. ♥

They were! But… maybe you needed to be there for them to make sense. ;)

That is totally awesome. Very intricate and great colours. It's a shame it's difficult on Lj.

Beautiful work .

Yeah- I did love the scrapbook option for as long as it was there. Thank you for the kind words!

BTW, I was running yesterday and actually started thinking on the Reggie/Kelp sequel. I'm so thrilled that you enjoyed the initial story! ♥

Ooh, glad to hear it. I was thinking, do you have a lawn to mow? I know you always said you enjoyed mowing as you got a lot of inspiration or simply the time to think of fics. Either way, both are a good source of exercise.

I can't wait to read more.

I understand the wordbender!! And thank you for the kind words. It ended up being a lot of fun; I suspect there will be more double knitted projects in my future. :)
