My mom sent me some gorgeous dark red alpaca yarn from Peru. Lots and lots of it. After some anguish over what would be a project worthy of this wonderful yarn, I've settled on making myself a nice, classy vest.
I'm not savvy enough a knitter to make up my own pattern so obviously, I come to you. I'm picturing a V neck, fitted around the waist, with some nice, feminine and discreet pattern (something leafy?). I can handle simple cabling or lace.
Oh, it's DK weight yarn.
I've looked through Knitty but nothing there really caught my eye. Help?
