Alpaca Lace Vest nearly there

My alpaca lace vest is nearing completion.  The front an back are both finished and are currently blocking.  Here is a picture of the back before blocking.  It looks rather crumpled here, but the blocking is doing it wonders.

Tonight, I’ll be able to sew it together and measure up to calculate the required stitches for the neck band and armhole bands.  Now to see if I have the right sized circular needle for the bands! The yarn is a little fuzzy, so I wasn’t sure how well the pattern would be visible, but it looks fine in this photo.

It’s great that it’ll be ready for Southern Hemisphere Spring wear, and Northern Hemisphere Autumn/Fall wear.  A win for everybody!!
