While I am fairly satisfied with the results I wish I had made the vest just a little bit bigger since I would prefer more coverage in the front. I’m going to have to experiment with some other tops and see if it looks better with them. As I was finishing this project I realized how long it’s been since I’ve completed a sweater-type garment and it felt very satisfying. So much of last year was spent knitting socks, scarves, shawls, and, of course, the afghan, so it was a nice change.
As you can see from the photo, after a stretch of some remarkably springlike weather, we have snow today. Winter’s last gasp? We can only hope.
