The nerdy vest is done!Bess, from the comments (and from her incredibly interesting blog, of course) named the vest Nerdy Vest, which I love for so many reasons:
1. I'm "Nerdy Knitter"--that's a no-brainer
2. This vest is for my nerdy professor-to-be hubby
3. Vests in general are kinda nerdy, dontcha think? (Before anyone is offended, I like the term "nerdy," and think being "nerdy" is fun.)
So thanks, Bess, for the name, and for the encouragement.
Here's the finished product. You can follow the link to Flickr to get a few more shots. None is very good, I'm afraid. I'm waiting until the vest dries to get a photo shoot with Nerdy Model Hubby.
I must say I'm quite pleased with myself on this one--it's the first thing I've ever made w/o a step-by-step pattern designed by someone else. It's also the first thing I've ever made that actually fits the recipient like it was (wait for it...) made for him.
Sorry--you want a photo, don't you?
I'll try for better photos tonight or tomorrow morning. We'll see how receptive Nerdy Hubby is to modeling for me.
