Comments: This vest is for my mom for Christmas. She requested a vest that she could wear while cleaning, that would provide her with a little more warmth without hindering the movement of her arms.

I'm really pleased with how this turned out. I had her pick out the colors online (without telling her what it was for) and they go together very well. I especially like the random stripe generator. I don't think I would have finished this nearly as quickly without it - changing colors at random intervals kept my interest during those endless miles of stockinette stitch!
