I'm a knight and I just got it from the forest. I was thinking of upgrading it since it looks pretty badass but is there some armour later on I should focus on?

What is considered elite knight armor? The east armor? I went to the forest and that's the only armor I've found.

No.

The Elite armor is found near the bonfire near the door that opens with the Crest. It's in a little path right next to that door.

I'm pretty certain it's called Elite Knight armour. It's in the first section of the forest after you go past the locked door ( that you need 20,000 souls to get in), then proceed down to where those massive stone knight/golem things are. It's on the right hand side of the area and after you pick it up you get ultra ambushed by like 2 golems and 3 treant things.

Yes, very much so worth it. I'm only wearing the chest and the legs since I haven't quite reached 40 endurance (which caps your stam and allows you to roll with the full suit of elite knight armor interestingly enough). I have both at +5 and the difference is amazing. Poise is almost cheating, and the damage reduction is nothing to scoff at.

Elite knight and east are two different armors. Apparently the Elite Knight Armor is a pretty good set though. You may want to if you like using it.

i'm sporting a +5 elite knight set myself. i think it's a lot better than east-west armor since this one does have higher def, but it weighs more than elite knight. wearing my sword/sword and shield/bow with wolf ring/havel ring. under 50% burden so rolling's not much of an issue, and i can pretty much take hits like a boss. XP .

40 Endurance here I come! Ha ha, but yeah that sounds pretty sweet, to you have to use a titanite shard/chunk thingeverytime you upgrade them?

well, it doesn't cost too much to upgrade... The material required to upgrade each armor piece to +3 can be purchased with souls. So you can farm the souls to upgrade. To upgrade each piece to the first +1 requires a total of 4,000 souls, assuming you don't have any titanite shards. If the materials were rare then I'd maybe wait. So there is no harm in upgrading everything to +3 at least, which is what i did.
