The emerald cardi I made my mum for Christmas was a great success - so unfortunately I have no chance of stealing it back! I felt that my dad was getting a bit short-changed so I offered to make him a sweater vest to replace one he's worn for at least 10 years. My mum claims that I knitted it, but I'm pretty sure I didn't, it must have been my gran! Which would make it at leas 15 years old, actually. Anyway, I made a tiny version as a voucher:

And have started on the full-scale version, including a nice simple cable rib. Strangely, the original has absolutely no shaping - it's just two square pieces with a triangle missing for the v-neck. I guess that's what they call drop shoulders. It does make it a fairly boring knit.
