I finished this vest a while ago, but didn’t bother to photograph it because I was feeling disappointed with how it turned out.
What I’m less thrilled with is how it fits. It’s too short and the armholes are tad tight. The back could also use some shaping. I blocked it pretty aggressively, hoping I could fix it. Although it helped, it’s still not quite right. So sadly, I’m not sure how much use I will get out of this little vest.
Knitting failures are so much more disappointing to me than sewing failures. I think it’s because of the time invested in knitting a garment. In theory I could re-knit this to fit better. But I have absolutely no motivation to do that. I’d rather just start a new project.
Here’s hoping I’ll have better luck with my knitted garments in 2014!
