Machine Knit Vest and Loes Hinse Ascona Pants

I have been working on knitting for a little over two years.  My focus has been more on skill development and understanding the mechanics of the mavhines.  However, this summer I have made two cardigans and this vest for myself.  I made the vest from a pattern by Helen Koshak of Newton's Yarn Country.  The yarn is wool Ray and was knit on my Brother KH836e machine.  I'm pleased with the vest and hope to get to wear it through the fall.  Pants are stretch gab from Heddy's in Las Vegas and my TNT Ascona pattern.  I hope to make another vest before we pack up the machines.
