Stash Reduction

The knitting kind. I've been doing some knitting in the evenings, and am now almost halfway through a vest using a really beautiful yarn that I bought over 20 years ago. (I like my yarn well aged.)

So far, I've finished knitting one panel, and blocked it today.

The pattern is a simple one: you knit two rectangles on the bias, and they become the front and back of the vest. With the addition of two side gussets and two shoulder extensions, plus some ribbing around all the edges, that's it. Sometimes, easy is what you need.

Okay, as the project progresses, I'll post more photos. It's slow going, though, because I'm not much of a knitter :>) and complicated instructions sometimes are baffling. Thankfully I have local experts, but hate to keep pestering them with beginner questions.

Easy is definitely required from time to time. :) Looks good. I also like my yarn matured.
