Here's what it began with. Debbie Bliss' Cable Sweater from Simply Baby.
And here it is with the matching shirt my sister-in-law picked out. This is what Little Guy will be wearing to his baptism next week (their church is pretty low-kep when it comes to what the babies wear). Perfect match I think, especially considering I didn't have the shirt before I started.

Modifications: Lots and lots! Well, for me it seemed like a lot. The smallest size the pattern was written for was 3-6 months and that would have been too big for Little Guy. So I needed to make it smaller. Plus, I had to modify it and turn it into a vest. I'm so proud of the armholes. I decreased differently then the pattern and I added the edging to the armholes. Oh, and I learned how to cable without a cable needle. Could not have done this project without that skill! Thanks to Wendy's easy to follow lesson!
Happy Knitting!! Happy Father's Day too (I think my brother might actually read this post today, or at least look at the pics!)!! xoxo Irishgirlieknits
