Carry a-long projects: Vest Idea

I've got an idea for a sweater vest that will be knit in strips.



The yarns I'm considering are:
Noro Kureyon in Color 32 (discontinued)
Noro Kureyon in Color 53
Noro Kujaku in Color 2

I have completed a sample in color 32 and like the colors but need to change the needle size. Recommended needle size is 8 and I swatched on a 4. It's too tight. So I'll go up to a 6 or 7. I'm thinking the stitch pattern needs to be relaxed a bit. Test swatching can be fun.

I've been wondering about your carry-a-long projects. I've been knitting a lot of cotton washcloths. What do you like to take with you and knit?

right around 35 second you sound like a newscaster! I was like "So you took her to the hospital and forgot about her because you were knitting!?!?"

You kill me man!

That's going to be one colorful vest!
