Another Artisan Vest

It’s been finished a while and worn a few times, but I keep forgetting to post it up here.

It’s another Artisan’s Vest from the Green Mountain Spinnery book. This time, I knitted it with Tai-Chi from Artfibers, color #3. It doesn’t seem like they carry this yarn anymore. My sister, Grace, gave it to me years ago, and I finally decided to do something with it.

Tai-Chi is 50% silk, 35% bamboo, and 15% cashmere. It’s a knitted tube type of yarn and has fabulous drape and hand. The photo just does not do the color justice because it has soft variations of greens, bronze, and gold highlights in it. I found some silver celtic knot buttons for it, and it’s perfect.

I used a little less than half, so I need to figure out what to make with the rest of the yarn. A good dilemma.

  1. I love how artfibers makes up the inelastic fiber yarns with chainette construction to give them elasticity. I love what you did with it!
