Just finished blocking a vest I made using Shetland wool that was left over from other projects. I used a 3.25 mm needle. It was knitted in the round with steeks for the the front and arm holes. I didn't bother securing stitches but just cut the steeks open and picked up stitches for the border. It was a fun and fast knit. I used the Fibonacci Sequence and made a sort of bell curve with 8, 5, 3, 2, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8. ......
Sorry the before cutting picture is blurry.

Very nice knitting, Ron. Good color combination, too. I should do a steeked piece sometime but cannot get rid of my phobia of taking scissors to a piece of knitting. Silly, considering my fearless ripping out of entire projects because they didn't turn out as I wished. Just one of those things, I guess.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Very nice Ron, steeks are a wonderful technique.

Wow Ron this is really nice. You are much braver than I am, cutting without securing the stitches. I like your colour choice. Any more news on your possible visit to Nova Scotia?

Wonderful! Those colors makes me wish I looked better in red. And the Fibonacci scheme makes a great balance. Don't we get a picture of you modeling the piece?
