Notes

Fun knit! I loved knitting the honeycomb stitch and found decreasing/increasing became intuitive as I went along.

Wished I’d made a size small. It’s a little loose on me; would like a tighter vest! To tighten up the neck and armholes, I knit the ribbing with a #3 needle.

That said, this may be my most professional-looking project. Very happy with how it turned out. I was mostly finished with it by July, but I procrastinated seaming and adding ribbing around neck/armholes.

Was nervous I’d run out of yarn at the end. Was left with just a few grams!
