I'm seriously considering this pattern, but I can't find any wool online that's affordable Sad and all the wool shops round here stock is nasty acrylic or baby shades of wool. Are there any UK based websites people have used?

Have you tried this one -? http://www.angelyarns.com/

It seems to be decent. Jamieson's yarn isn't bad either. Have you tried ebay as well?

Ooh thanks cranberry, I tried ebay but didn't find anything suitable really. This should be fine Smiley.

OK, I've been knitting this vest for a while now (I'm at about row 50) and I'm curious about what to do with these steeks.  I'm using a superwash wool so I guess I can't do the steeks? 

Should I just knit the entire thing as per the pattern and machine sew the seams/armholes afterwards?  I think some of you did it without the steeks, so any advice you could give would be wicked awesome as I am thoroughly confused right now!!!  Thanks!

ok, so the yarn i used was an acrylic blend, so i couldn't do the steeks as written either. I figured i would machine sew them, sewing is my first love, i thought how could i go wrong, yeah well it went wrong. machine sewing distorted the edge and made it wavy. I ended up crochet around the raw edges with wool, almost like a serger stitch. I completed one arm hole and my vest isn't looking great, the arm hole is a little too large, i had to put the vest aside because at this point i want to rip it to pieces.

I'm finally done with mine!

I started about a year ago, my post is in the page 5 or so of this thread. It took me ages to pick it up again from the UFO basket, but I'm really happy I did, I love how it turns out!
The yarn is Rowan Cashsoft DK, which was divine to knit with.

It's gorgeous! Did you make any changes? Or have gauge probs like I've heard a lot of people did? Your vest makes me think I should have gone with the brown and white rather than the colors I chose.
