Oat Couture Oregon Vest

I'm practically speechless. ..........

I'd like to thank my LYS' Julie for the fine finishing work. The pocket seams and zipper look great. For twenty dollars I avoided the process I fear most.
I'd like to thank Oat Couture Natural Knitting for the fine inspiration.
To all the people at Misty Alpaca, from the spinners to the llama cleaner uppers, I love you.
To my knitting mentors: Deb V. ,Madelon, Diane, Joanie, irisheyeslynn, Jan, Jen, oh there are so many to thank...who am I forgetting !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALLISON. Thank you Allison for your pattern rewrite. No wait, just a few more.....

to my blog friends for their unfailing optimism in my times of frogging,
to my husband for finding the yarn shop sale in the middle of the NorthWoods last summer,
when, in 100 degree heat and humidity I was purchasing Alpaca,
to my parents and son,
and finally
finally, to my irish and hungarian relatives who left me their genes, calves and all!
Thank you thank you thank you.....
