Parcel, vestified and completed
It took me a surprisingly long time to get this vest finished. First it took forever to dry from its blocking (I hate you winter, please go away) Then, it took me three days to get the collar and sleeve edges done. Just not enough knititng time, I guess. Anyway, not it's done and I love it. The alpaca is sosososo warm and soft, and the round neckline is flattering and, I think, a little more feminine than the more common v-neckline that I often choose. I wore it out, with jeans on Sunday. Today I'm wearing it to work with a skirt, and it works just as well in that context. All in all a winner of a knit.
