FO Friday (night!)

I did manage to finish a sweater vest that I had started crocheting for my husband last winter.  I didn't do anything with it over the summer, because it was so hot.  Since it is cooling down again, and I wanted to finish it in time for him to wear it this year, I have been working on it the last couple of weeks.  I found a pattern for it in an old Workbasket magazine, and used some of my bargain yarn from "Big Lots."  I added the stripe of burgundy in the front, and I like the vertical stripes of front post stitches.  Some of those patterns in that magazine are timeless!

Nice pattern! It looks like it should be cozy and toasty this winter.

That is a nice looking sweather, Miss E. Your hubby is a lucky guy.

Thank you for peeking in on my Six Words last Saturday. I'm just getting back to you now. Probably will sit out tomorrow.

Great vest for your husband. It's nice to see him wear it too. We were having a discussion in one of my groups the other day about husbands not wearing our knitted goods.

It's a great pattern and looks really warm too. Always good to see things being worn, too!

The colours look great together. Well done on finishing it. I've still got two sweaters waiting to be finished. Thanks for shaing.
