In 2014, I brought home two bags of Shetland fleece from the MDSW.
Right before the 2014 TdF I washed it lock by lock.
During that year's Tour I spun it and knitted it into a vest that I thought I would hate. It seemed itchy and bulky while I was knitting it.
When the eye doctor called to say my new glasses were ready I went looking for something to put on to go pick them up. It was chilly but not cold enough for a sweater. Those btw are my first ever real glasses for seeing distance. In order to continue driving, the state of Maryland was insisting I get them. They live in the car. They cost me $300 and you know I would lose them if I were to actually use them for anything but driving so in the car they stay.
After digging through the knits, I threw the Galiano vest on for the very first time ever but there was a problem.
Having no buttons, it gapped open.
I used a turquoise earring to hold it closed. It worked. The whole point of all of this is that I loved the vest. I wore it several days in a row. It wasn't itchy, it wasn't bulky and now I want to make more. Knitted vests are the way to go.
