Thanks to Ty who helped me select these cool fused glass buttons, the vest is a finished, wearable object. I love this design, and the yarn is my favorite – Alchemy Synchronicity. Just luscious to work with, and the colors are so saturated.
This knit up so quickly that I’m planning another one in Ellyn Cooper’s Homespun, a slightly heavier gauge silk and wool blend. There’s something very perfect about the combination of equal parts silk and wool in a fiber. It’s like ice cream and chocolate sauce or strawberries and whipped cream, or some other combination of totally yummy things in perfect balance making the whole much greater than the sum of its parts. What decadent synergy!
