Apparently I finished the sweater vest. Overall it’s acceptable, considering it’s my first large non-hat, non-bag project. The crocheted edge was a pain in the butt. I’m not sure I do it correctly. How hard can it be? It’s crochet for Pete’s sake. The straps are a tad on the narrow side and they keep curling, so I hope a good blocking will fix that. The gauge is way off, I’m sure, but I couldn’t be bothered to start over. For next time I’ll try a little harder. There’s a bit of variation in the color that is quite nice. I’m glad I dyed it instead of buying a solid color. My only quibble with it… I think it makes me look chunky.
