I finished the vest and I am very happy with it except for one thing:
I haven't made anything with a v-neck for quite a long time and I had forgotten that for a perfectionist (only with my knitting) like me they are a headache. This was the third attempt and I decided that I was never going to get it as neat as I wanted so here it is finished. So if anyone has a special tip for finishing v-necks please let me know, mind you it will probably be quite a while before I do another one. That being said I do like the pattern and style and it fits perfectly, sorry no one here to take a photo of me in it, it is the Devon vest from Jo Sharp Gathering and is knitted in Heirloom Heatherwood 8ply. I bought the pattern book and yarn using the gift voucher that my MIL gave me for my birthday. The book has some great patterns and I have another one picked out to make some time in the not too distant future, I can even use some yarn from my stash to knit it in so that is always a bonus. Anyway I am off for my Friday morning walk with Fiona which always gets rewarded with a coffee and muffin (light of course) afterwards.
