Mon petit gilet raye- A big yawn ..

This is one of those projects that started with a lot of enthusiasm but the steam has lost it's power and it is now hardly touched. I was coveting this one stripe version in which a circular needle being used at achieve the single stripes so at times you have to knit or purl two times, each times from different needle end. The yarn was bought in loop - I used a neutral cream , Madelintosh sock in antique lace for the stripes and the more luxurious- skein in 'barley ' for the bands - neck , button and sleeve long cuffs. The brown , light blue colour is achieved by using Casbah sock in Bronze' . I like the subtle effects of the single stripes but oh dear , what a bore.. I left this project so many times that my tension is not the most even and it is a bit too loose on me. Just two sleeves now so really must get on with it..sigh
