Despite of (or perhaps due to) a cold that has kept me somewhat out of commission this week, I was able to make more progress on the Culdesac Vest over the past few days. Last night I finished the left front, and began the considerable finishing for this piece.
At this point I have sewn the shoulder seams, finished the cabley bits that wrap around the back of the neck, and knit the armhole edgings. Next I will work the buttonhole bands around the front, sew the side seams, and weave in ends. Oh, and that whole pesky blocking thing, and finding buttons. If not for that last, I could confidently say that I could be wearing this vest in a week’s time.
