Sapphire Silk

You might remember this project from an outfit post from the beginning of the year.  I finished this vest in January, I believe, and it’s a pretty cozy, thick vest.  I really love the deep blue color of the yarn and the lacework on the vest.  If this is the wintry version, then I want to make this vest’s summery sister- lighter weight of yarn, more open/lacy, and looser fitting.  Now I just have to find the right pattern…

Tell me: How do you feel about the crochet/open knit looks that have popped up this season?
