My new project.

While we were at the Folk and Fiber Fair in Chicago last month I finally found the thread to do my vest. I had been looking for several months and could not find anything I thought was suitable. This is a hand dyed pearl cotton and Jeff picked the color. I in no way would have picked the red and purple I really thought he would go for the earth tones they had or at least the turquoise and purple. Which I am kind of sorry I did not get at least some of. He said he really liked this the best though and that my closet had too much turquoise. I just hope I can pull off this color when I get it done.
I don't think that the pictures really show the color well and frankly as I work it up it has way more orange in it than I would like. If you would like to see what this is going to be the pattern is here on the Red Heart site.

We are headed out for Spirit Lake, Iowa in just a couple of hours to do a show at the fairgrounds so if you are in the area or even if you have to drive a ways come out and see us. It is inside so should be cooler than it is outside this weekend.
