Finally finished my Don's Vest. I paid VERY particular attention to details on this one which made finishing seem like an eternity.

It is just fresh out of the washing machine and blocking now.

Wow, what beautiful work! How long have you been working on this project? I have just started knitting the Crofter's Slipover in Folk Vests, and I can only hope that mine will turn out as nice as yours.

Good Job!
