Fast Far

After knitting at a small gauge so much lately I wanted something thicker, something faster.
Chunky yarns, yippie. This was in my stash, coming from the second hand shop, it was about 650 grams, german, with its band, that only said Naturwolle (100% schurwolle), no manufacturer. The pattern is from IK 2008 fall, Far Afield Vest... as the nature of things with my knitting the gauge was different... As for the stitch count I went a size down, but I had to fudge the row counts. The result is sporty, and warm. Good with jeans and white long sleeved T shirt, for causal fridays.

Yes, I think I knit relatively fast, faster than the average knitter...
But don't forget, this was a chunky yarn, and big needles.
