I'm done! After much fleece washing, dyeing, combing, spinning, plying and knitting I have now finished the Shy Sheep Vest. And it was worth every minute. I love it.
I made a bit of an alteration to Mabel Corlett's pattern. I carried the I-cord edging all around the entire vest rather than stopping at the front points. I think it looks more finished this way.
