HA! There’s nothing I like better on a cold morning than a steaming cup of Coffee!

There’s nothing I like better on a incredibly crisp cold morning than a steaming cup of Coffee
served up with a
NEW VEST!

[Oh. Throw in a handful of peanut M&M’s and I’m gone hook, line, and sinker.]

One more thing – see the shirt under the Vest? Got it, Old Navy, pennies – waffle-knit thermal HOODIE! Olive Green. (and I got a burgundy one too!)

MODS to ze Pattern: tweaked the gauge from 1620 to 1722 for the Silk Garden yarn. Made the ribbing longer (to the first cable cross). The cable looks a lot more dimensional in person than in the picture – love that mirror-in-the-bathroom-effect and HEY! I cleaned the mirror first!

I like – it is warm, and cheerful and most of all, IT’s a VEST!

    Thanks for the heads up regarding Old Navy! I just got home about $115 lighter – and 3 large shopping bags heavier! Now I have to get a vest finished!

    That vest turned out so well. I haven’t been a big Noro fan but this might just change my mind! I especially love the way the cables cross into the neckline. Cool!

    Most excellent. I have some Noro marinating in the stash, and this may be the project. Thanks.
