FO: Vest
Pattern for the vest is from Oat Couture. Yarn is Knit Picks City Tweed HW. Color shows best on second photo and design elements, i.e., garter stitch edges and braided ties, show up a wee bit better if you click on the photos.

Very nice!

I've been seeing a lot of the KP City Tweed lately .... It's making me want to go buy some for myself!

A great simple vest. So useful in the wardrobe. The color is very nice. It makes me think of "midnight blue" my favorite crayon in the box when I was a girl.

It was made for my daughter who lives away. Will try to have her model for a photo.

I City Tweed yarn! I just downloaded a pattern from Annie's Attic that calls for heavy weight yarn...just have to decide on the color of CT...and add it to my long list of projects.

I PM'd you a while back about this yarn and if I remember correctly you didn't have the lot #. I found some on Ravelry with the same lot #.
