Tomato Season

I got started on my Tomato over the weekend & made a LOT of progress!
Since this is now a free pattern, and I'm a free pattern ho, I just had to make it. I wanted to get practice with the scary fair-aisle, so this was a perfect way to start. I love that since I learned to knit "throwing" and then switched to continental, I can do that two-hand method easily. The only hard part is the tension, which is really hard as a tight knitter.
I also finished my vest from Fitted Knits over the weekend, but the pictures of it are just a green blob, so I'll have to get Joe to take some of me in it.

Love the look of this neckline, frames the face, love the fair isle design, also gotta love any of Wendy Bernard's designs. Very cool!

Tomato looks great! Tension is my biggest problem when doing fair isle too.

Once again, this will look TERRIFIC on you --- as opposed to the poor editor of Knitting Daily who really should know better ...
