On Nnenna's Needles #15

Sapphire Silk
 


You might remember this project from an outfit post from the beginning of the year.  I finished this vest in January, I believe, and it's a pretty cozy, thick vest.  I really love the deep blue color of the yarn and the lacework on the vest.  If this is the wintry version, then I want to make this vest's summery sister- lighter weight of yarn, more open/lacy, and looser fitting.  Now I just have to find the right pattern...

Tell me: How do you feel about the crochet/open knit looks that have popped up this season?

I seriously envy your awesome-ness in knitting and I can def see that vest for summer time too, I know my main staple will be my crochet dress and my homemade crochet sweater that I think I'm going to wear it soon with shorts this summer/spring (when it is nice outside) time.
You should wear that vest more!! especially with dress too, it will look cute on you

Oh my goodness, this looks lovely! I adore the color you chose and the result is fantastic. I could never do it myself, haha. Maybe someday when I dedicate myself and finally become a successful knitter/crocheter. And I can't wait to see the summery version!

I love this - you could definitely make it boho summer wear I think (it's right on trend in that respect).

Ahhh your creations just keep getting better and better! This is amazing, as always. I'd love to see how you could summer-ize this. A white, lacy vest would be perfect.
