Red Echo

I finished Michael’s vest off with a set of brass clasps, in place of buttons. I had a little trouble getting them positioned, but it came out fine in the end. He came by to pick it up on his way out of town for a weekend trip, and it was great to see him feeling good and excited about wearing it. This project was just ambitious enough to stretch me a bit without requiring a lot of backtracking, and I am very happy with the way it came out.

Now of course it’s time to think up the next project. I’ll poke around in my remnants box after dinner and see if anything inspires me.
