Neighborhoodie Pics

As I said, I finished the Neighborhoodie last Sunday, after a quick trip to JoAnns for a zipper.  I was able to find a blue one that blended well with the colors--no stark white one this time.
I felt that the vest was a bit large.  But in the pictures, aside from being long, I guess it looks ok. 
The pockets are applied after knitting, and I only started the 4th big ball of Marbles chunky yarn (341 yards reach I think) as I began the last ball.   Aside from the fact that is acrylic, a fact my fiber snobbishness can't ignore, I quite like it.
At least it can be tossed in the washing machine.  But if I must go acrylic, I think I still like a wool blend.
