Back in Vestvember, I got very zealous and started three vests. Two I finished during the month of November, but as the third was a Christmas present for Dad, I moved a bit slower on it. I brought it with me to Norway and worked on it in plain sight of the recipient :) And now it’s finally done!

I’m not sure if I believed that it was going to work, despite all assurances that it would.
When people told me it was no sweat—really—to take scissors to my knitting, I nodded and shrugged like I was well versed in this technique and had no concern.
But the truth is, I’d done a whole lot of reading about steeking, understood the theory and concept thoroughly, and seen loads of friends do it, but I hadn’t yet done it, I was scared out of my mind.
But I dove into the Deep-V Argyle Vest anyway.
Early last week, my friend Christy posted a picture of her outfit that day, in which she wore her Bloom vest. It got into my head something awful and next thing I knew I was on Ravelry searching “vest.” Then Bertha tweeted something about looking at/considering Honeycomb. No, *I* am looking at/considering Honeycomb, I said! Clearly, vests had gotten into her head too.
