This is Why I don't knit Sweaters...

First of all. I promise this was going to be a vest from the beginning.  I suppose the fact that it's taken me two years for a vest, not even a full sweater, makes it worse.  

This is the third top that I tried to knit for myself that is HUGE.  I used the right needles, I used the prescribed yarn--even the same brand in this case.  I must stitch too loosely.  I think that is another reason that I took so long to finish (besides boredom) was because when I finished the front, I knew it would be too big.  

So...here is my hubby modeling MY sweater vest.  LOOK HOW WIDE THE SHOULDERS ARE!  This was the EXTRA SMALL sizing!!!  I don't get it and it's a bit discouraging. 

Oh well, it feels good to be done, and I can't wait to start some new projects.

I think it looks nice. Of course this is coming from a person who cannot even get the yarn off the first needle. Good job!
