holiday knitting project '08.

striped sweater vest 021a


the machine-sewn side seams helped to give it a snug fit, but i'm not at all happy with the shaping in the front. it's really "flat" and the V-neck is too high but i think it's just the wrong shape for my body type. i need a deeper v-neck.

i'm ambivalent about this vest right now. i'm glad it's done. it's warm, it fits, it's just not a great fit.

i feel like this is the kind of garment that could grow on me.

or it's the kind of garment that i will grow to hate.
