I finished up this vest/tank from here (http://saunshine.blogspot.com/2006/01/jems-collection.html). I used the recommended yarn--Paton's Brilliant--in blue shimmer. The yarn's not my favorite, but I like the finished product!

Mer, it's lovely. If I looked as good in a sweater as you do, I might be tempted to try and knit one. :mrgreen:

Thanks for all of the compliments!

What didn't you like about the yarn? (Just curious)

The yarn is a bit scratchy (it has a metallic thread running through it) and also unravels quite a bit--I had to tie knots on the inside after weaving in the ends so that it didn't come apart! It's really not that bad though, I think it works well with this top.
