Above is the test gauge for Zitron Nimbus 100% Organic Merino. The yarn choice really confirms my affinity for single ply yarn. I am not sure why that is. But, I knew when I start this project that I wanted a rich color. Some of the others I thought were a nice mahogany brown, deep navy, plum or cordovan shade of red. The picture doesn't really show the color in its truest form. The color is really a charcoal color, think pencil lead.
I am slowly making progress. I seem to psych myself out since I am more or less writing as I go. The end result will be a vest. I love the idea so I hope it turns out the way I hope. It is being knit for a small-medium for pattern-submitting purposes. In the yarn I chose it is going to be rather warm. But, the pattern is versatile enough that, done with the right yarn, could be worn in the spring/summer. I have a few other projects on my plate I am working on as well. So, off to get a few more inches done.
