This started out as Lion Brand's Comfort Shawl (http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/60085A.html), but mom requested I turn it into a vest for her, since she loved the color. I always have an easy project I can do in the dark or without looking, and Homespun is very forgiving that way :teehee:. It's all garter stitch.

It's already on my Ravelry project page (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Arielluria/comfort-shawl-homespun-knit) with instructions on how to do the front if anyone's interested.
