Off the needles!

Long time since a post, but lots of kntting happening.  This is my Balcony Vest.  Original pattern name is Montague, which brings to mind the balcony scene in Romeo and Juliet.  I love how the lace looks in the bulky tweed yarn.  I wear this a lot, perfect layering piece for a cold workplace!

This one is a hat from Weekend Hats book, the original was in a purplish yarn, but I had navy on hand. 
More projects on the needles, and a few I gifted without photos (bulky cowls = perfect teacher gifts!).
