I'm a poor college student, so most of my yarns come from frogged goodwill sweaters. This was one such sweater. I'm not a fan of pink, but because this was 100% italian silk, and half off, I had to get it.

I promptly frogged it and saved the silk. i then flipped through the latest knitscene issue, and found the 2 over 2 cable vest and decided that the silk would be perfect for it, and that it would be a great gift for my aunt, who just graduated from UMass.

And without further ado, here's the vest:


it's a little big for me, but then again, its not for me. Here's an action shot (please ignore the messy bedroom. i'm in the middle of packing for college):


I made the size small, but my gauge was bigger than the pattern stated, so it was the perfect size for my aunt. The pattern is really easy to follow, there's no shaping, and the hardest part was seaming up the sides. Although, the pattern could be easily modified to be knit in the round.

So cute! Especially the second pic where you can actually see the cable design really well.

This is beautiful! I'm a huge fan of pink myself, and I love the design. Nice work!

(Also: hope your move goes smoothly! Good luck!)
