Cable Vest finished - yay!!
Dear ladies and gents, today I finished my Cable Vest. Such a fun knit and lovely yarn. It's from Patons (Australia)'s book "Jet Mens", page 19. Book 1266. The yarn used is "Jet" a 10 ply wool/alpaca blend with colour variations (at least the one I choose did) of blues, greens and greys.

If anyone would like to see the pattern, just private message me and I'll see what I can do.

That was quick too! Weren't you just casting that thing on a couple of weeks ago? Or am I thinking of something else? Whatever... great job!

Wow! That is really impressive. I love the colors in the yarn and the design (including the v-neck) came out beautifully. Well done, David.

Thanks, one and all, it was a trying but fun project. Thanks especially go to the mods here, without whose help, this project would've ended up as a cat blanket.
