Knit update: Grandpa's Cardigan is turning into a vest!

Remember Grandpa's Cardigan from The Plucky Knitter? (It's the name of the yarn for those who're getting confused)

Shen and I finally wound 1 skein last night and I have casted on my first vest. We're just praying that 580 yards of yarn is enough because the pattern called for >600yards but Im shortening it a little and making some small changes to the straps.

Such gorgeous shades of gray - cant wait to see how the colourway turns out!

And I just realised I forgot to take pics of Father Albert's scarf before giving it to him. So these are all I have of the scarf.. Really simple design and a really warm scarf!
