What are you most proud of? combining the lace and cable in a simple 4-row repeat, and getting a full-sized vest in a large range of sizes out of 1-2 skeins of yarn! What advice would you give someone starting this project? use a row counter, or a chart keeper to track the design. The pattern offers written directions as well as the charts, for those who are less comfortable with charts. Also, block out the vest before seaming the sides, or it could end up shorted than planned.
