The back of my dad's vest is almost done. I just cast this on the day before yesterday and I'm already doing the decreases for the arms! I can not tell you how excited I am about this. I'm getting fast!!
I'm knitting this in Caron Simply Soft Eco (dark chocolate brown) which is made partially from recycled plastic bottles. You wouldn't think that's it's as soft as it is! Such a pleasure to knit with, really! The stitch definition is nice, has a nice drape to it, and it's 100% acrylic (so my dad can wash it normally). I'm really happy with how this is working out so far.
