Pattern: Heather Hoodie Vest by Debbie O'Neill from Knitscene Fall 2009 (Ravelry Link)
Yarn: Patons Inca - 50% Wool, 30% Acrylic, 20% Alpaca in colourway 7023 - Grey. Bought for 79p a ball from Kemps. 10.5 balls
Needles: My new knitpro interchangeables - 6mm
Started: 10th August
Finished: 18th September
Buttons: - Mussel shell (reverse side) from Textile Garden
Comments: It fits! The hood was a bit of a pain, I picked up less stitches than called for and knit quite a few less rows but it is still massive! However, I cast off a little too tight so even after blocking it sits a bit weird.. however it looks ok and I want to wear it on holiday so I'm not going to tinker with it any more. It is really warm and cosy. I'm happy :o)

Now I'm off to try and decide what holiday knitting to take. Decisions decisions.
