I actually finished something I can wear other than a scarf or hat! I like the way it turned out. I need to block it now that it is all done. I had already blocked it before I joined the front and the back. I really enjoyed the experience. The next project, I think, is going to be a knitted jacket made with super chunky wool that I can wear late fall and early spring. I found a nice pattern to use. I am visiting with one of my new friends from Men Who Knit in Milwaukee next weekend and we will visit a yarn shop while we are there.
Thanks to all you guys who offered me encouragement and superb advice as I tackled my first vest.
