A new UFO has begun

This is the "RoseMarkie" vest from one of my new books. It's billed as a "one star" or easiest pattern, and since I've not done steeks before, I thought I'd stick with the easy patterns until I'm comfortable. The pattern calls for warm colors, oranges and browns, but I love the blues and purples so I made it my own colorway. This is how it looks today after working many hours this weekend.
My intent was to post this picture of my progress last week after I frogged the entire ribbing and had to re-do it, but when I signed on Wednesday morning before work (that would have made it around 0300) the site wasn't functioning. My apologies. And yes, I'm still working on my Aran sweater for my dear husband. I was getting burned out and needed a little break from that, hence the new UnFinished Object. There's just not much time in the day after working and doing everything else, but I do try to knit at least a little bit each day. Have a great day and Knit Happy!

I'm not much for the original colors of Rosemarkie myself. I can't wait to see how yours develops!

Beautiful! It looks great! So far I like your colors a lot better. I can't wear any of those oranges and pinks! :)

I can't wait to see your full pallet as it develops!
