Finally...It is So Far

As with all my craft projects, it took me several months but finally I finished it:

I changed the pattern slightly as I was supposed to knit a separate band, to twist it in a particular manner and to sew it to the lower part of the vest. It was a lot of headache so I gave up and added the finishing touch with the help of a crochet hook.

Here is how it was supposed to look:

Not exactly the same thing, but in general, I'm content!

    I think yours look better than the one in magazine. Less bulky.

  2. I think the difference lies in my choice of yarn. Instead of using the sort the magazine suggests, I knitted the vest from some leftover wool I previously used to knit a skirt. Still have one whole skein left and decided to give it to a friend who crochets.

  3. Because otherwise I don't know what to do with it:)

  4. A good feeling of accomplishment! Enjoy wearing it!

  5. The point is, you finished it. You have a very nice vest to wear because of your work. It looks very nice on you.

  6. Thanks, ladies! I already started working on an unfinished project from the last year.
