    I’m a bit too excited that you’re making this pattern. When I first saw it, I literally gasped. I love cables, but I don’t love the bulk they give the finished product. It seems like this vest is a great balance. Do you know where I can get the book? I liked a couple of the other patterns out of it too!

    I never think to look at Patons booklets, but they have real gems in them! E.g., the Urban pullover or cardigan. Thanks for introducing me to another one!
