Lynda is going to be busy during the holidays. She is making the Library Vest from Churchmouse Yarns for us. The yarn is Zara from Filatura di Crosa.
Here is a picture of this project in the beginning stages.  Gauge swatch blocked to exactly 6"

When I reviewed the pattern, I was a little nervous about the "Clip and turn". I simply followed the directions and was very pleasantly surprised at how easy it was.  Churchmouse patterns are really well written.
Lynda had me a bit freaked out with her email. Why is she cutting?

I just read through the pattern and "Clip and turn" has nothing to do with scissors. It is an interesting way to do a wrap and turn. Whew.

With simple styling that lends itself to the classroom, workplace or weekend, this vest is so classic, so quintessential, it could become your uniform. The jumper length has a certain schoolgirl chic. The abridged, hip-length version is a flattering layer without the bulk of a sweater. Either way, it’s a nice little primer of techniques you’ll use again and again.
