So obviously I did not just finish all of these projects, I've just forgotten to post 'em.

The first one is the Swizzle vest from Domiknitrix.  While I do love the vest, (it looks great on, is warm and was fairly easy to knit) I am disappointed in the book in general.  There are erroneous mistakes in the patterns and last night when I when to start the last pattern in the book (elfin bride/Gothlet), surprise! the pattern was never PRINTED.  Just the pattern intro and pictures of the finished product.  Honestly, ever hear of an editor?? 

Sorry about the rant...

This next one was taken from a Urban outfitters sweater I had bought forever ago.  I used manos of Uruguay and knit in the round for both the tank part and the arm warmers.  The armwarmer have thumb holes so you can wear them down on your hand or up on you elbows.  I call it the pitless sweater...

This last one was also my own design, I was origionally trying to make a deep v-neck vest, then didn't pay attention to what I was doing and wound up with a standard one.  I used Cascade and a very funky art yarn knitted together.

Here is an up close of the colors:

Thanks for looking at the vests and my bathroom!

somewhere in the description of elfin it tells you what to do, theres a part of the book you need as a password to the website pattern link - my books upstairs & i am too bone idle to get it & give you better info!!

i was also disappointed in the book, i tend to use it for the 'hoe to'section at the front which is a really handy reminder, elfins the only pattern i really like, the rest seemed a bit ordinary once i sat & really went through it in detail

i do like your vest tho!

The elfin bride/Gothlet pattern is available on her website, I think it says that somewhere in the book...

I love the last vest so much! Any chance of a pattern?

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.

Those are really nice. I especially like the first one, it's very modern looking.

there are two things that I don't believe in: coincidence and leprechauns
