Cabled vest

I actually finished this a couple weeks ago, but my husband, aka the photographer, was in France on a business trip. Then we were on vacation for a week and, no, I did not bring the lovely woolly vest with me to the beach.

Pattern: Estes Vest from IK Fall 2008, 36"
Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride bulky, tahiti teal
Needles: US 9 and 7
Mods: I lengthened it by one pattern repeat
Thoughts: I'm really happy with how it came out. It was the first time I ever did I-cord edging and I really like the way it looks. It went faster than I was expecting it to as well. The button staining was successful, too.
