I promised pictures of progress on the problematic mobius beginning. It is in the final phase of completion as you can see. This vest merely lacks the armhole ribbing and then…I plan to knit a ruana!! (hear the swelling triumphant music? The scores of marching bands and confetti in the air?…you should!)

Well, yes, it *IS* a startling shade of red, but I have all this cone yarn given to me that I want to use up…I really should freecycle more of it. Even doubling, tripling, or quadripling the threads does not use up much of the cones. Keeping it and feeling guilty for not using it because that is “wasteful” is really a bummer.
