The Knitting Garage at Stickle's in Rhinebeck, New York

Found the yarn in the clearance bin and love the color. Since the Autumn Vest is one of the store samples at the knitting garage which I frequently borrow when I am too cold, I figured this is the perfect next TV and/ or chatting project.
I do want to add buttons, possibly as in the shawl collard vest.
I cast on using the cable cast-on on #13 needles. It looked tighter than I wanted it so I switched to #15’s.
I hope I have enough yarn as there is no more than these five balls at the shop.
By changing the needle size this is becoming much bigger. So far I knitted about 10“ and am on my second ball of yarn. I wonder if I should rip it out and work the smaller size….I am thinking to continue to the armholes and then decide…also changed back to #13‘s which means I really only used the bigger needles for about 6“ at my hip wink

11.12. Instead of binding off I kept the stitches live and did a three-needle-bind off across the shoulders.
I did the same with the neck stitches; kept them live instead of picking them up again later.
