Well, my needles finally came in for me to cast off on my vest. I'm such a tight knitter that I had to go up to a US size 11, to get the gauge I needed. I'm making an in between size to the dimensions given, so I'm adjusting my stitch counts according.
So, after swatching, frogging, then starting the project for real, here is where I am:
Yarn: Berroco Glint
Colorway: #2903 Zeus
Needles: Knit Picks US Circulars size 11
This is a yarn that feels a bit rough in the ball, however when you knit it up it becomes really nice to be a garment.
I plan on knitting this whole section, then using my SOAK and block it. I want to make sure that this ends up being a perfect rectangle.
