I've just finished the Foothills Vest from Mountain Colors in their Mountain Goat yarn, a very easy to handle yarn that I would gladly use again.

and a closeup of the mitered construction:

The first pair of wrist warmers are from the Weekend Knitting book and knitted in Patons Merino:

The second pair are a combination of several patterns that I smooshed together and knitted in Lambs Pride:

The vest was from a class, I was determined to finish while I had the instructor available for assistance :lol: . Since my knee surgery last week I needed some simple but quick gratification, so the wrist warmers have been fun and easy. Now I'm back to work on the Einstein!

Ohhhhh so beautiful. What a great vest! REally superb.
I love the wrist warmers too, both of them. Those are my kind of colours.
I like the buttons on the cream ones too, Ihave a big bunch of buttons, I'll have to try that. Thanks!
