Argyle Vest-Along!

A nailbiter...

Hi all... though this is my first post, I've been working on this vest for awhile, and am close to being done! Here's my progress:

I love it! Such a satisfying knit, and I really like the colors I picked. Now here's the problem:

That's all the yarn I have left! Ahhh! I don't think I'll be able to make it. The worst part is that I ordered from Knitpicks, so I'll have to wait a week for the yarn to come in. And I'm on a roll!

Oh well... if this is the worst problem I have with this garment, I guess I'll count myself lucky!

So, we all have an unspoken question: how is your gauge? Many of us ended up with minidresses... did both your row and stitch gauge work out okay? (If so, tell us what you did, please)
I dig the colors and can't wait to see how it all turns out!

Yes yes! Please tell us what you did for gauge! I'm going to post about all the wild math I had to do to adjust the shaping and placement of armholes and steeks... The colors look fantastic and place that Knit Picks order NOW so you can continue to rock & roll! It looks great!

The colors look so yummy! I'd recommend placing the order right away-- I hear that shipping is faster when it's not the "free over $40" one

Oooo, thank you all! Yes, I'm using Knitpicks Merino Style in petal and vanilla. I'm at work now, but when I get home I'll measure my gauge and post!

I just ordered the vanilla for my vest too! Is it really white or is it more of a cream color? (I'm planning on using Vanilla and Hollybeary) Thanks!

I love those colors! Hope you get your order soon so we can see the end result.
