I made up a muslin of Simplicity 4366 but it wasn't the style or fit I'd envisioned. So I traced the Burda pattern, #119 from 04/2010, checked it against the Simplicity muslin, and it looks like a winner. I just need to do a shorts muslin, treat my wool twill, and sew them up.

I started this vest watching the Presidential election returns so it's appropriately titled Election Vest. It uses cobalt blue wool/mohair with handdyed bluish-purplish wool for contrast. I worked a 5" wide ribbed waistband in blue, then started a two color pattern called Bricks to show off the handdyed yarn. Tonight I'm up to the neckline.
I hope November is treating everyone well. I haven't had a chance to post about Wovember, the UK's wool promoting month, but have been wearing wool every day and loving it!
