The flash washed this out a bit and gave it sparkles - I need to retake the picture. However, it does give you an idea of the red I plan to put with the red leaf fiber.
I've been looking through Folk Vests and will probably do one from that. Aside: I really don't like her trick of "resizing" the patterns by changing gauge - same yarn, resize by changing needles. If I need to make the smallest size, I don't want to have to do it by knitting at an impossibly tight gauge and making cardboard.
At any rate, it calls for sport weight and I have something heavier than that, so I'll be monkeying with the gauge my ownself. Depending on exactly how my gauge comes out, I may be monkeying with the pattern as well. I don't plan on making cardboard though!
