How about turning your knitting on its side?

Designer Knitting Pattern
Our new Zack vest pattern is knit sideways. This elegant design is knit in one piece with small seams at the shoulders. While it is sophisticated it is also easier than it looks. This unique pattern double strands Zauberball Crazy lace weight variegated yarn to create a beautiful blending of color. And Trekking Sport in a solid color joins in to create a vest so classy you’ll never want to cover it with a sport coat. Since both yarns are a matching blend of superwash wool and nylon you’ll have a timeless creation with lasting durability.

With check off boxes for each row you can put this project aside for a week, a month or a year and return to the exact spot where you stopped."

These designs take men's sweaters to a whole new level of luxury and deliciousness. Might have to get a new man once my divorce goes through, just so I can knit him a James Cox Knits sweater.
