Unfornately the vest doesn't fit me. I chose the wrong size because I didn't realize that I had gotten smaller from all my efforts at the gym. I made a swatch with left over yarn to see how it would react should I try shrinking it. Of course, I haven't done it yet.

Thanks! Funny you mention that ... I didn't actually lose weight, but inches instead. :) Since my weight was the same, it didn't occur to me to measure myself again. :doh:

It's still pretty, even if it doesn't fit. And doesn't it feel better that it is too big rather than too small?:teehee: I made a sweater last year that turned out a bit too small. I was so frustrated I didn't pick it up for almost a year to see if I could fix it.:hair: Good luck with yours!

I have done the same thing it is a very sad affair (I thought I would be my pregnant size forever)

I keep it in a drawer with my sadness...

I really hope yours shrinks.
