Great colour combination

Have been knitting for years. I knit continually then will try another craft, but will return to the needles.

I'm not much of a sweater vest guy, but I have to admit, I like it. Well enough that I would be tempted to not only knit it, but knit it for me and wear it.

Absolutely gorgeous! I can't wear sweaters anymore because I tend to overheat easily (got pictures of me shoveling snow wearing tennis shoes and jeans - no shirt/coat). Hats off to you, sir! (and such a handsome model!)

There is no shame in self promotion :-) It looks great, and I saw you have another design in the same issue, very cool.

Though the first thing I noticed was there being another designer I know in the same issue. Heather Lodinsky is from Buffalo and teaches at the LYS near my house.

I don't wear vests myself but your pattern looks beautiful!! Congrats Kenny! The "Star in Stripes" sweater looks really interesting too. You do a great job designing!

I was going to post something on this after my issue came last week. Well, I have to say that this is a great design and I can see myself knitting it. Of course, it will have to join the long line of other projects waiting patiently. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Beautiful sweater, Kenny.
I am still a novice and can only sit back in awe of you guys who have become so accomplished. The sweater color combination and pattern are amazingly stylish. So many sweater-vests are frumpy and remind people of Mr. Rogers, but this one is very much a statement to good taste. I also like the picture of you on Ravelry on the link you gave us. Great smile and quite a great thing to be honored like that! Well done, brother!

I was just lamenting how Knitter's magazine had taken a dive...many, many treasures are held in the ealier editions...and then I saw this!!! Truly a standout, Kenny, and I am so very happy for you and your beautiful accomplishment.

You deserve to be noticed/published/etc. I wish for you all the successes in the world.

Best to you always,
