Vest on Friday

The Hubz' vest continues.  I'm up to 11" and need to be at 16" before I start the armholes.  It does seem very small, but I measured his favorite vest and that's where it is.  The armholes are, however, pretty long.  The circumference is 50", and I'm knitting on a 32" circular needle, so even though it looks very skinny, it isn't.  I spread the vest over 2 circs, and yep, it measures 50".

Once it's washed and blocked, it'll all appear smooth and lovely.  He likes it, which is good, because 326 sts takes a bit of time to knit.  I am enjoying it, so if he wants another one, I'm game.

The top pic is a close-up of my cute little cable, and is much lighter than it really is.The yarn is Palette by Knit Picks, and the color is Ash, which is a lovely charcoal gray.  I like knitting with it very much.  Soft, flows through my fingers, and is nice and woolly.  

I'm also knitting a hat for charity and 2 pairs of socks, but this is the main knitting at the moment.  Lovely, mindless, soothing stuff.

Your hubster is a very lucky guy. Very cute vest. Those cables do not look like mindless knitting though.
