Peacock's Best Vest

Daughter and I are still sick with bronchitis (pause for a moment of self pity). Between the lack of oxygen to brain and the medications to get well, I have no brain power for anything beyond the necessities. So all designing is at a halt including a proposal I had hoped to have done by now. Oh well (cough, sniffle) However I manage to browse internet looking at patterns for projects I would like to do.

Peacock's Best Vest from SWTC has caught my eye BIG time! Seriously LOVE it. Go look! I'll wait. ;)

But I don't love 19 skeins X $12.60. Maybe I'll browse for alternatives when feeling better. Let me know if you have suggestions.

(cough, cough)

ETA (10 min later) - I have no will power. Have purchased the pattern. Will concern myself with the yarn when I'm feeling better.

The vest is beautiful! I did some looking around, and it looks like you can get the yarn for $9 a skein (still a big GULP) at
