I finished the Deep V Argyle Vest, my first heavily-stranded knitting, and first steeking project.
I managed to find the exact wool Eunny had used for her vest (I live in Korea), but I couldn't manage to get the gauge.. I just redid all the maths to my measurements.
I changed the armholes as well, to make them more gradually curved.
It was a real learning experience, and I love love love the finished product too!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
