I am merrily knitting away on the Ribbed Diamonds Man's Vest. What a marvelous pattern! Enough patterned knitting to be interesting, but such a well designed pattern that it can be carried around, too! I love how the pattern comes right up from the ribbing and how the V neck follows the Vs in the pattern. And I love that each pattern change has a 4 row repeat for mindless knitting. It's a joy to knit. Thank you so much.
