Leftovers vest
I made this using Andean Silk from knitpicks. I'm rather happy with how it turned out. This is my first adult piece that I will actually wear out of the house.

I should also mention I altered the pattern a bit. I only did 2 inches of ribbing on the bottom and I also did 1 less inch in the body part.

It looks really great!! You've inspired me to finish mine - all I really have left to do is the armhole finishing and a few more ends to weave in.

Looks great - you can wear it proudly!!

That looks great! I just ordered myself some yarn for a vest, in fact. Which pattern did you use?
