Yarn along

I am making pretty good progress on my sleeveless vest, even though it doesn't really show very well in this photo. There are already over 600 stitches on my needles and that makes it a bit difficult to get a good picture. By the time I will be ready to cast off, there should be over 1400 stitches! 
Still reading "The year of fog", it's just been really busy around here which doesn't leave that much reading time.
Meine aermellose Jacke macht gute Fortschritte, wenn man es auch auf diesem Photo auch nicht gut erkennen kann. Ich habe jetzt schon ueber 600 Maschen auf der Nadel und das macht das photographieren etwas schwierig. Wenn ich die Jacke abketten kann, sollen ueber 1400 Maschen auf den Nadeln sein!
An meinem Lesematerial hat sich nichts geaendert. Das Buch ist wirklich gut, aber leider fehlt mir im Moment die Zeit zum Lesen.
Joining Ginny for the weekly yarn along. Thank you so much for hosting!
Dankeschoen an Ginny, dass sie diesen woechentlichen yarn along macht!


  1. 600 stitches sounds like knitting heaven to me :) I see the progress!!

  2. Wow...that is a lot of stitching! I just know it is going to be beautiful when all is said and done.

  3. That's A LOT of stitches! It is going to be awesome when you get it off the needles.

  4. gosh, that's going to be gorgeous!!! can't wait to see the FO!!!

  5. It really is easy to see your progress this week with the knitting project of that gorgeous vest! Looking forward to the pictures. ;-)

  6. I once was told to place stitch markers every so many stitches to help with the counting when my stitch numbers get so high. How are you keeping track of so very, very many?
    Happy knitting,

    1. Lisa, the pattern is divided into 6 sections and they are each marked with a stitch marker. Every other row I increase to the left and right of the stitch marker. I just counted one section and multiplied, otherwise it would be very hard to keep track. :-)
