Getting Serious

 This is one of the two vests I am working on at the moment. Up until now I've been taking my sweet time enjoying the colorwork.

 Soon though I am going to have to do some serious shaping.

The problem is that I don't know how. I know how to use steeks to open the front but figuring out how to make the v-neck and the arm openings is another thing.

Craftsy came to the rescue once again. I bought this class during a half price sale and I've already gotten more than my money's worth. It's got everything I need to know AND a pattern that I can knit along with when Tracery is finished. I love Craftsy.
Where do you go when you need help with a project?


  1. I go to google. But I haven't tried anything as intense as you're doing. I have deep admiration for all your talents! Seriously....I do. :-)

  2. Tracery is going to be AH-MAZING!!!!
    When I'm stuck... I go to Mom... she is a complete knit wizard.

  3. So far, I haven't knit out of my comfort zone. I guess if I did, I'd try YouTube or one of my friends. I have several friends that are very experienced knitters. (Thank goodness for FRIENDS!)

  4. You vest is gorgeous! I can almost always find answers on Ravelry, Google or YouTube. I learn a lot from blog friends too.

  5. I usually go to YouTube for a good visual.
    Beautiful knitting...I love this project!

  6. I'm excited for you. Your mad knitting skills are getting madder! I know you'll do great. Tracery is so pretty, that colorwork/combination is just fantastic.

    I mainly google -- sometimes I recruit a friend, but I don't do things quite as challenging as you, so there is that ...

  7. Ohhh I may have to take a Craftsy class. Im thrilled to know you get your moneys worth!

  8. I can also tell you that on Feb 9th of last year you were working on the same thing. It was way new. For some reason when I bookmarked your blog it choose this date to come up. I refresh the page to get your current posts. SO I see that miracle of yarn you are knitting ALL THE TIME
