So far so good on the alpaca vest. Right now it's just a lot of stockinette stitch in the round, but it's starting to actually look like something LOL. Still several inches to go before I reach the point where I need to work it flat for the arm holes and the V in the front.
I'll do the back up to the shoulders, and then do the front up to the shoulders and then connect the shoulders with a three needle bind off so that there is no seam at the shoulder. But as I mentioned, I have a ways to go yet before I need to worry about that. For now it's just several more inches of stockinette.
