Comfort Vest
This started out as Lion Brand's Comfort Shawl, 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 . It's all garter stitch.

It's already on my Ravelry project page with instructions on how to do the front if anyone's interested.
