I decided to use my newly purchased pound of alpaca yarn to make a vest. It's my first attempt at making anything like a vest or sweater so it should be interesting LOL.
I'm using the Unisex Vest pattern from Lion Brand's website and adjusted the stitch count for using size 7 needles and to make it an XXL so that it should fit me if I did my math correctly.
I've cast on the back, finished the ribbing, and have just started on the body. That's a lot of knitting in sport weight and will take me a good while to finish the thing as I am not the fastest knitter in the world. But it should be a good learning experience and good practice for the sweater I plan to make soon.
