Blaze Reincarnated

I've been seeing knitted vests everywhere lately. First I noticed some patterns out there in internetland. Then I've seem some nice ones on people's blogs, like here and here (scroll down). Lorelai wears vests on last season's Gilmore Girls. And last night the newswoman on tv had one on. I WANT A KNITTED VEST!

I've got the yarn in my stash to make one. Actually two. But I'm trying to get the Gilmore sweater done first. So this morning I had the scathingly brilliant idea to try Blaze as a vest. Taaadaaa! What do ya think? I wonder how my Tempting would look as a vest? Or Soleil?

Yep, I wore Soleil as a vest yesterday. It looked pretty good! I'm not too sure about Tempting, though. A little too off-the-shoulder I'm thinking.

I think your idea is smashing! Would you try to convert it to a v-neck? Or leave it as a scoop? Thanks for visiting my blog!
