I finished this last weekend, and I am loving it! Sweater vests are totally awesome in a nerdtastic way, and this one's the ultimate in nerdiness:


And yes, I will totally wear this vest with that shirt and those glasses:


This is pre-blocking, so it looks a little lumpy.
I think if I did this again, I'd go the next size down. And there's some things about the pattern that are a little silly, like binding off all the shoulder seams and sewing them together instead of just doing a three-needle bind off.
Oh yeah, and I wouldn't use Wool-Ease. DOWN WITH WOOL-EASE!

Thanks for looking!

okay, maybe thats a tad excessive, but the combo is superb in every way!!!


in short, good job. Grin

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.
