The Man Vest
...is at last completed! After my worries that it wouldn't fit, it ended up fitting just fine. I don't think I would want it any tighter though.. perhaps a smidge longer, but there's not much I can do about that now :)
And the back, complete with humid weather bad hair day:
While I was stitching it up, I noticed one side kept needing to be pulled to fit the other..and it turned out that I had done one extra round of striping on the front! Argh! The pattern never said to count the stripes, just to knit until a certain length was reached. Wisened up to this whole striped knitting fiasco, next time I'll be a little bit more clueyer and count those pesky stripes!
