Vest -- done!

Doesn't exactly fit me, even after blocking three times, but I guess that's just more evidence that I should never attempt to make garments.

Knitted vest

Here's another UFO that's been haunting me for some time. According to the receipt in the bag, I bought the yarn for this project in February 2003. I don't even have the pattern anymore.

I believe that I gave up on it after I accidently joined the shoulders wrong way out. I took the shoulders apart.

Because I'm not a natural knitter, this thing is TIGHT. So I'm blocking the heck out of it, then will see if it will remotely fit me. If not, I think I'll figure out a way to crochet in a side panel, and then crochet the neck, and hopefully it won't be too awful. Stay tuned.
