    This vest is delightful! Brioche knitting is on my “to learn” list, so this one’s already in the queue. What an exciting giveaway! I want to try some Anzula soon, since it’s a local-to-me company, and everything I see of theirs looks wonderful. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

    I absolutely adore this design and it is the first thing I want to make from the latest Holla Knits collection. I consider it the ultimate compliment to say that I’m more than willing to knit – literally thousands of yards of yarn to get that look. This thick vest will be perfect for the fall-to-winter transition in my mountain town! Congrats on a fab design!

  14. I love the drape on this vest. Very cool.

    Love Anzula yarn!! Perhaps because it’s local for me. But, any who, winning this giveaway would surely coax me into knitting my first article of clothing to wear!

  30. The vest looks great! I like how the yellow either is the dominating colour or just brings more colour to the collar depending on which side is out. Thank you for the great giveaway 🙂

  31. Love the colors – and that the vest is reversible!

  32. Very unique and you can do so much with it. Very pretty.
