Finally, buttons are attached, tails are woven, everything is blocked.
I don't love the necklines of the vests, which might be why I hid them away set them aside in the first place. The pattern is from Knitting for Peace, which is a lovely book with good patterns, but my suggestion when knitting these side-to-side vests is to be aware that you are decreasing a neckline, and do it loosely.
I'm happy to get these off in the mail for their deadline of May 13. I started another vest (different pattern!) but know better than to hold these up waiting for it to be finished!
