I'm going to Ireland next year!!! In the spirit of that event, I'm making the Stone Walls vest designed by Cheryl Oberle from her book "Folk Vests".
The pattern calls for an Irish yarn, Black Water Abbey (wool/color Bracken). One of the girls on Ravelry was selling her Black Water Abbey so I bought it. There was some mention that it may or may not have been smuggled into the United States in the bottom of a golf bag. Shhhhhh what VAT tax?
As soon as I finish the Nordic Trail vest (progressing nicely), I'll start this one.
