The holidays are coming up and I am in the middle of making gifts. On my Flip I have merino in various colors which have been aging in the stash for at least 7 years. It was spun originally from top chosen by my mother for a fair isle vest or sweater, but it never was knit up. It will, instead, be a Japanese style panel vest. Here it is in the process of being woven, I have not yet made more progress, and I need to get going, but at least some progress has been made.
