Finished Vest

After working on my knitted vest for weeks, it is finally complete. It took longer for me to block it and sew on the button than to actually knit it. Sometimes I'm funny like that. 

Yarn:  Lion Brand Fishermen's Wool in Oatmeal
Needle Size: US 10 1/2 (6.5mm)
Pattern Source: Eco Vest from Knitting Green  (it looks like you can also get the pattern in a free eBook)
 I made a small change from the pattern. I wanted a longer vest so I knitted to 13 inches before the armholes to get the vest to sit at my hips.

Love how it turned out. I am proud of myself for getting this one right as it is my first time knitting a garment for myself :)

Happy Knitting!

p.s. I bought more sock yarn...
