Pattern: Floyd vest, by Martin Storey, from Rowan Miniature Classics. This is a lovely book of baby and toddler patterns. Sizing issues aside, I will definitely be making more from this book. I hope!
As with almost all Rowan patterns, it is knit flat and seamed. It could be converted to knit in the round if you desire, although the shoulder and side seams are fairly short and don't take much seaming really!
Sticks: I started this when I was away, and even though I grabbed my set of KnitPicks Harmony Options, I found I didn't have the correct size for the ribbing (3.25mm) so I used 3.5mm instead, and I think it looks fine! I used 4mm for the main part of the vest, as specified by the pattern.
Time: 27 August 2011 - 28 September 2011 (it took me a little while to sew on the buttons!)

I think this is a very cute, easy and practical knit. I just wish that the size was a little bigger so it would fit for longer! Next time, I will pay more attention to the schematics and Connor's actual measurements!
