I have started my August for me project and it is the Ribbed U-Neck Vest from the Vogue Knitting magazine I got from a swap partner a few months ago. Above and below are my two guage swatches.
It appears to me that I have gotten guage both times so... here we go:
This is the wrong side of the work but I do like looking at stockinette a lot. I already made a mistake in the pattern but it will just be a little longer than it was supposed to be which I'm totally okay with. I had to stop about 1 1/2'' before I start to decrease. But I was knitting merrily along, all pleased as punch and wasn't paying attention. Now when I start knitting the front I will have to remember to stop 3'' before starting my decreases. :-P
