Red Vest in Action

Last year I knitted up a Molly Ringwald vest out of some Elsebeth Lavold Silky Tweed that I had in my yarn stash. The yarn was gifted to me by a knitter friend and I had this pattern on the list to knit for a long time. I knitted it up with an additional two inches length. Then, I never put it on. I'm not always comfortable in my own skin and it took me until this year and losing 13 pounds to want to give it another try. I pulled it out, blocked it, and wore it to teach my Continental Knitting Workshop.

Being silly for the camera! I can imagine wearing this into the fall and winter over a white oxford. Glad I didn't give up on it! Do you have a favorite summer knit that you wear lots? I'd love to hear about it in the comments.
