Aran Waistcoat is Complete

I finally steam blocked the edgings on this vest this afternoon and tested out some button closures. I ended up crocheting some button loops on the inner edge of the placket. I just didn't want to cut buttonholes into the finished garment. It seems to be a pretty good solution for now, and easy enough to change if I don't like it later on. I don't know if I'll wear it that often completely buttoned up, but it works!

Melissa - it's really beautiful. I especially like the low neckline and the shapely fit. I think this is going to be one that gets lots and lots of looks and compliments when you wear it. Nicely done! - Jennifer

That's a super clever solution! What a genius :) It turned out great, that cable on the front is gorgeous.
