Mum's Vest - Done!

I got my Mum's Maunawili Falls Vest done last night, so today I'm going to try to package it up and get it in the mail. I'm pretty happy with how it came out, and I made a few modifications to the original pattern, as per Mum's wishes. The neckline is deeper (scandalous, Mum, simply scandalous!) and I lengthened the overall length, although not as much as I thought I had. Ah well. I think it'll still be long enough, but if it's not, I'll just take out the ribbing and knit some more length on the straps.

Hope you like it, Mum!

Specs:
Yarn: Malabrigo Verde Adriana (3 skeins)
Pattern: My own, called Maunawili Falls Vest
Needles: Worked on US size 10 Denise circulars
