Say hello to "Florin," the child's vest I've been working on! I named it after the gold coin minted in Florence, Italy during the Middle Ages, both because of the "Coin Cable" trimming the hem and the back neck, and because of the vest's refined details-- to me, Florence conjures images of finely wrought gold, handmade marbled and printed paper, frescoes and bas reliefs...okay, so I'm getting a little carried away. But this little knit is great fun, because the Coin Cable is not your average cable; and because the armhole and neck edgings are worked with the body, meaning very little finishing time; and because the heavy worsted yarn and in-the-round construction mean rapid progress! I'm having a second sample knit up, and the pattern tech-edited (and I'm SO happy not to be doing all of that by myself!), and plan to have the pattern available for sale in September-- in plenty of time for holiday knitting. Look for a coordinating hat pattern too!
