Casting on, and stash enhancement

I cast on for the Vine Lace Vest a week and half ago. It's going pretty quickly. The lace pattern is easy, but I kept making stupid mistakes for a while. I think I've got the hang of it now. I don't normally like lace garments, but this one does not look too frou-frou. It's also a perfect way to use up most of my 6 balls of Cascade pima/silk.
I recently suffered an aging event (a.k.a. a birthday) -- ugh! It coincided with my LYS having a great sale, so I gifted myself with some fresh yarn.

Happy Birthday! Mine was Sunday! I love the idea of giving yourself a yarny b-day gift. The peach color of the vest is lovely.

Happy Belated Birthday!! I hope it was wonderful! Of course, getting yourself some new yarn is a good start ;)

Love the vest! Can't wait to see it modeled...
