i love participating in the harlot's olympics for a number of reasons, and this time i did register (so i'll have a record of my feat) i chose to do the leftovers vest that was in knitty2004. i've long admired this and wanted to do it, but never moved it onto the needles. part of my dilema was a lack of matching 'leftover' yarn. so i am using brooks farm solo that i purchased on my first visit to rhinebeck in 2007. i and clearly remember standing in the booth with jessica (it was such a tight fit that cc refused to even try to get to us) debating all the pros and cons to the yarn. at that time my yarn purchasing was always done with a project/pattern in mind. thankfully, jessica soon shoved me out of that mindset (and i've got several stash items to prove it) this yarn was just waiting for a momentous occasion, so here it is..... my olympic challenge.
let the games begin
