Don's Vest - Finished and Blocking

Finally finished my Don's Vest. I paid VERY particular attention to details on this one which made finishing seem like an eternity.

It is just fresh out of the washing machine and blocking now.

Wow, what beautiful work! How long have you been working on this project? I have just started knitting the Crofter's Slipover in Folk Vests, and I can only hope that mine will turn out as nice as yours.

Good Job!

Beautiful work. It is the finishing details that always elevate any project - tedious though they may seem.

I'm kind going to copy everyone and say it all at once Kenny :) ...

That vest is gorgeous, amazing, beautiful, spectacular, inspiring, masterful and stunning!

Lucky Don! I love the two color patterns...the one on the back is really quite wonderful...I may just have to use that in something.

There is no Don in my life. :*(

That's the name of the pattern.

and thank you all for the nice comments.

Is it too late to change my name to Don?

Mill and Bill,

I'll give it away..... doesn't fit me anyways.

My first name actually begins with a "D." Is that close enough? LOL! It's sick how beautiful this is Kenny! Really! You inspired me (as usual) to start a pair of Latvian mittens I've had my eyes on with some beautiful stranded work.

Dear Millard?

I'm a "Jr." My first name is Denis. My Pop got the first name and everyone in my family always called me by my second name to differentiate.

Very nice, Kenny. The way it all blends together is fabulous. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
