All that in one WEEK?! O_O /me bows to your speedy knitting

LOVE the colors, too!

I'm so tempted to pick mine back up, but must keep working on art school portfolio first! Gah, will it EVER be done???

Also, I'm really dreading weaving in all my ends, there's SO many! Any suggestions? This is the first time I've ever made anything that didn't just need the two tails to be woven in. Is it better to weave in along the sides of the work or along the back? And if along the back, how do you keep the different colors from showing up on the front in the Fair Isle patterns? Smiley

Keep goin everyone!

i'm going to make my easter deadline!! I just finished knitting the neckline and now i have to knit on the arm hole trim and its done!!

queenofthieves, i'm weaving the ends into the back of the piece, i just tuck it under the purl bumps so that it doesn't show through on the front.

thanks! i think it looks kind of like 80s kitchen colors! but i love it! Hopefully i'll get some better action shots today now that my sister is in town for easter. I'm also super excited that its 38 degrees outside today, its april in texas and this doesn't EVER happen so i'm excited i'll get one legitimate wear out of the vest before the fall!
