Leftovers For Nona

alt_hereNona thinks Alison Hansel's Leftovers vest in the current issue of Knitty deserves fresh yarn of its own. 10 new balls of Julia in 7 different shades, is my fresh yarn of choice.  I'm using a chocolate brown -- the new black -- for my ribbing and trim and then autumn spice colors for the stripes.  "Autumn spice colors" -- nona what are you talking about?  Just check out my swatch yonder left. 

Alison has designed the vest to be close-fitting.  But based on my experience with form fitting ribbing -- see "Does This Make Me Look Pudgy" -- I've decided to go up a size!  Alison has an interesting twist on the ribbing, which is worked double stranded on needles 2 sizes larger.  She claims "the bulky ribbing at the waist and neck adds a dash of style".  Nona hopes so!

leftovers-alongI'm excited to see that Anita is hosting a "Leftovers-along", count nona in.  Care to join?
