It's finished, yay! (Remember you can click on the photo to enlarge it.) This is the Allspice Vest done in Tahki Cotton Classic rather than wool. Size 7 Denise needles, although I sized down to 5s when I was knitting the armbands. Also, I put decreases in the bottom corners of the armholes to keep them from flaring.
It doesn't meet up in the front, and I had intended to make it short enough that it wouldn't need to clear my hips, but the weight of the cotton makes it stretch a bit. I think I might give it to my MIL for Christmas because it would fit her really well. . . I knew I probably wouldn't like it because I don't wear vests, but it was fun to make.

I also wanted to send you guys over to see Emily's tutorial on making a summery dishtowel totebag. Also check out Belinda's elastic waistband tutorial. Great info, y'all. . .
