Shawl Collar Vest

I tried a couple new techniques for Meg Swansen's knitting book "Handknitting". This was knit in the round as you can see in the earlier post. I used steeks for the arm holes. I should have taken a couple more stitches off from the under arms, the shoulders are a little wide for a vest. It makes me look very square with is OK. The Shawl collar was fun to knit, I didn't completely understand Meg's directions but my interpretation worked and the collar rolls nicely. I think I could have gone a couple more ridges to make the collar a little higher. I like the browns with the black. I have enough wool, I 'll have to come up with another idea. Now I will have to finish the sock knit a long, I lost interest early on.
