Happy Thanksgiving! My sweetie and I are planning to spend the weekend relaxing at home. I have already pulled out a few knitting projects that I hope to spend the majority of my time working on. One of my current projects is the Ivy League Vest by Eunny Jang from the Winter 2007 Interweave Knits. It is my first large-project attempt at Fair Isle knitting, and I must say that I am enjoying it. I picked this project because I wanted to learn how to steek my knitting, though now that I have cast on the front neck steek I am feeling a bit nervous about wielding a pair of sharp scissors near my precious hand knit garment. I am confident, however, that I will be able to muster the courage to press on once the excitement of having a finished garment hits.
