While I struggled (for many reasons, not just in the actual knitting) to work what’s now know as the 70+1 vest, I’ve always wanted to knit it for myself. My studio space can be chilly and I wanted something to toss on. I finally figured out the differences between the original and revisited pattern, and have a better grasp on reading garter stitch. So this was a quick and successful knit.

Best part of the project? I used up long lingering yarn from other projects, Veste (2008) & Mittens (2014).

I love it. Do I wish it was all one yarn? Yes! Am I wearing it now? Yes.
