I knit this little Milo vest (my sixth!) last winter when I just needed to be knitting something *now*. Milo vests are good for that instant gratification knitting when you don't need another hat. I used some Cascade 220 handpaint that I had bought because it was such a good price for a handpainted yarn. I really disliked this while it was knitting up because of the awkward pooled stripes (sometimes I think I should just eschew all variegated yarn), but I stuck it out and finished it off because it's such a quick knit. And when I put it on the baby it was rather cute. Another Milo win. Rav notes.
