Often times I get excited when I go into a yarn store and purchase things I think one day I would love to make. I do have the best intentions, but sometimes that's just not enough.
I purchased this pattern, knitting needle and yarn back on July 13, 2014. It's been stored in a plastic container in my smoke free home since then. I don't plan on making this dickens vest any longer and thought I would offer it up to someone who would.
The pattern book is Berroco #298 Blackstone Tweed & Blackstone Tweed Chunky. It is brand new and contains 10 knitting patterns in all. I planned on knitting the dickens vest on the front cover and purchased an Addi Turbo knitting needle 24" US 10.5 and enough yarn to make a medium sized vest. The pattern calls for 14 skeins and I purchased 15. The yarn is Berroco Blackstone Tweed Chunky. The color is 6603 and the dye lot is 020343. It's 65% wool, 25% superkid mohair and 10% angora rabbit hair. It's hard to describe the color and I can send more pictures if you were interested. It's a dark gray with subtle specks of green and pink.
The pattern book originally cost $11.75, the Addi Turbo knitting needle cost $20.75 and the Berroco yarn cost $10.50 a skein and there are 15 skeins. A $190 value excluding tax. On my original receipt I used a coupon and got the knitting needle for .75 so my total purchase price was $181.48.
This listing includes all of the items pictured and described above. They are all brand new and have not been used. I'm selling this kit for $100 with free shipping. That's a $80 savings if you were to go into a yarn store and purchase these items yourself and I'll ship it to you for free. Should you have any further questions or would like more pictures please message me.
