Finished at Last

Well I've finally finished my 'Birch Vest' by Kristin Omdahl.
I'm quite pleased with how its turned out. I wasn't sure how the yarn would work with this pattern as the recommended hook size and stitches per inch guide differed between the yarn used in the original pattern and the yarn I've used. However using the wpi substitution method seems to have worked well, my vest's final measurements match those given in the pattern. The pattern itself was easy to follow, some parts of the project required extra concentration for counting, but overall it was repetitive enough to not require the pattern constantly by my side.
