Nothing like some beautiful color! to liven up the place! Time for a real FO Portrait of my traveling project.

It is raining like made right now — the skies are as dark as night at 10 am in the morning. I shot this newbie about an hour ago when we were just in a cloud instead of a downpour.

Straight from the floor of TNNA, with some fancying up via pressing and a little more finishing, this vest version in 100% wool is quite exciting.

The Spring Tickle color has all the tones of a glorious grassy hillside in the sun. (I’m fantasizing Tuscany, but I did see the same rolling grass driving on Interstate 70 coming home). There are subtle variations of natural greens highlighted by golden strokes and a mere subtle touch of aqua; absolutely yummy.

And, the entire project was one of my more lightening speed efforts: from start to finish (with LOTS of interruptions in between), it took about 10 days of knitting, steady on and off.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Here’s the whole Mondo Cable story
