Very nice! Amazing; I lived in Hinsdale some years ago within a few blocks of the overpass separating it from Clarendon Hills, and took the Burlington Northern to work in the city1 Great time of year there for such a nice, warm and colorful vest!

Really pretty colorway and lovely knitting. Glad to know about the KnitPicks yarn. I just signed up for this class and thinking of using that yarn.
