I finished up this vest earlier this month and it's taken me this long to get a good photo of Jon wearing it! I guess it's hard to want to put on a wool vest when it's warm outside.
If you remember, when I first started it I was trying to teach myself to knit continentally. After reading all of your advice, I decided to switch back to what I was comfortable with (English style) and knit at my own pace. I'm much happier for it now!

I used the pattern from Ann Budd's Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns for the general V-neck vest pattern. This is an extremely useful book and I will definitely be using it again to make some other custom garments.
