|Die Cut Vest by Sara Morris|
I will say that it shouldn't take anyone more than a month to knit, ahem.
I tried to knit as is, but I ended up making a zillion fitting changes, not least of which because finding gauge was like catching a unicorn in mid-flight:
What that crazy piece of paper shows, in the bottom quarter, is how the vest is knit from side to side, in case you find it tricky to envision. The orange box denotes the back garment.
In case you're curious about my other project in-process, the never-ending Karner Wrap: It's never-ending. No joke, around the time I went to visit Andrea, I had 50 grams of yarn (or should we call it what it is: thread) on the skein. I knitted for hours. Hours. And at the ends I still had 50 grams (ok, 49g). The wrap is growing inches, but the ball of yarn is no farther along. That's what you get for knitting with thread. I'll just have to keep going at this for a few hours at a time, sporadically, and one day it will be complete!
But today's question is, what should I knit next?
I'm really not in it for the fitting. I'm so sick of fitting right now (it's like I'm saturated and I just want to knit - or sew, for that matter - without having to put on my fancy math hat)...
Of course, in the spring I stashed up and, none of the 8 zillion skeins I currently own would optimally work to make any of these:

And here's the back...
Thing is, there are only a couple of finished versions on Ravelry, and I do tend to stay away from the sweaters that aren't well-documented by others. I don't feel the need to be the guinea pig...
There's also this one:

I appear to be finding flaws with everything. I do have another batch I'm considering too, but let's start with these.
Thoughts on whether I should make the Hourglass, Gradient or One-Sided Raglan? Let's talk.
