Ta-Daaa!!!

I present the green vest...



#20 Super Quick and Easy Vest by
Roxana Designs
yarn: Classic Wool by Patons,
color #240 leaf green
size 8 needles

It definitely lived up to it's name: "quick and easy". I added about 4 inches to the length. The original pattern falls right at the waistline. I like my cardigans and such about hip-length. (Then I don't have to tuck in my shirt, lol!)

It only took about 50 pictures and a change of batteries to get some pictures that are true in color :)

OK, that vest turned out FABU! Knitting is such a great talent, and you sure do have it! Thx for posting on my ornie frustration thing--I did check out Focus on Finishing, but I swear I didn't see anyone say anything about whipstitching ornaments together, lol! I'm going to have to try it again by hand. Thx!
