Cayden

It's time to celebrate the next step in my life with a new design!

Introducing Cayden!  
Cayden is an oversized vest meant to throw on over jeans and a t-shirt, your favorite dress, or whatever suits your mood.  Seamless and worked from the bottom up, decreases occur along the bobble edge all the way up to the neckline so that the front hem falls gracefully downwards. 
I knit two different versions of Cayden; The grey version I am wearing is knit in Fibre Company's Road to China Light in Grey Pearl.  This yarn is CRACK;  a decadent blend of 65% Alpaca, 15% Silk, 10% Camel, and 10% Cashmere this yarn is light and lofty with an incredible drape.  The second version is knit in my tried and true favorite, Schaefer Yarn Heather in Apple Green.  This wool/silk yarn fingering yarn is an excellent example of how much more a sock yarn can be.
For this design I decided it was time to hire a professional for photos... I ran into Caro at TNNA (a few times) and decided to do an impromptu shoot.  With Deb as a stylist the shoot was an utter success, I just wish they lived closer!

Thanks to Kristen Tendyke for tech editing, Caro for photography, and Fibre Company and Schaefer for yarn support.
