Darling Vest updates

Welp, looks like the darling vest is done. I may try to write a pattern for it, but it might be a tiny bit convoluted. I had to rip out a lot of the left front, but I was able to regain composure.

I think I am going to add cap sleves, maybe a little puffy? Which color do you all think? Purple or green sleeves?

I started the Mrs.Darcy cardigan on Wednesday using stashed malabrigo. I have a little bit less than 3 balls because I used it once for mitten cuffs. As a result, I don't think I will have enough for a whole sweater. I bought some lilac to make the cuffs at work the other day so it should work out.

I've made a few adjustments because the pattern is written for a 34" bust and I am more like a 38. I feel like a linebacker.

Stay tuned for progress pics of both pieces.

I leave you with this:

That is darling indeed. I vote green sleeves.

I vote purple sleeves, and I love the puff cap sleeve idea. The malabrigo is going to make Mrs. Darcy beautiful, especially in that saturated color. Bravo.
