Culdesac Back

The back of the Culdesac Vest is knitted and blocked. Thanks to the prewash I gave the actual yarn, there were no gauge changes when it hit the water. I had knit (unsuccessfully) with this superwash yarn before and knew that it relaxes and changes gauge dramatically if the prewash precaution is not taken.

Color in the photographs is not accurate. It should be a deeper burgundy-red.

The left front is now cast on and work is slowly progressing. Slowly, because I am also knitting a pair of baby bootie/sock hybrids and doing the occasional swatch for the Master Knitters program.
