Love the vest! That pattern intimidated me, would seem to take forever with all those honeycombs. Did it seem hard, especially since you said you knit tight, were you tired of it at all by the time you finished? It looks great!
I wasn't tired of it at all. In fact, it was so satisfying to do those honeycombs that I'd occasionally get carried away when told to "Continue in pattern until piece measures x inches" and end up going way too far. All that ripping back is probably part of the reason it took me so long to finish it--but that was my fault, not the pattern's.
