It's a vest because it has no sleeves.

"What's the difference between an orange?"  "It's a vest, because it has no sleeves."  This was the first "joke" my husband told me when I first met him.  I thought it was the dumbest thing I had ever heard.  He thought it was hysterical.  So when I finished this  vest last night and asked him what he thought, he started with the joke and then told me he wasn't really fond of vests.  
This was a really quick project, maybe 10 hours total.  I used Lion Brand Wool Ease, an H hook and a stitch pattern from one of my crochet books (I can't find the exact book at the moment).  I whip stitched the front pieces to the back and edged the entire vest in double crochet.                                                           

Next up on the hook is a basketweave baby blanket made from superwash merino wool that I purchased from WEBS.  It is so soft and has a lofty feel to it.  A friend is due any day now, this needs to get done ASAP.  I still don't have any edging ideas.
