Vest in Noro

My KIP friend, Maxine is knitting this vest and I thought it would be perfect in my favorite yarn, Noro (7 skeins Silk Garden). It's a simple pattern of two easy pieces that I modified as follows:
Front Panel - On #7, CO 74 sts, K2, P2 for 57"
Back Panel - Pick up 82 sts in middle of front panel, K2, P2 for
15 1/2"
I picked up mom this morning to go to the Flea Market and of course, she fell in love with the colors of this Noro and demanded I make her one too. Why not, Christmas is around the corner. I'll make hers on #8s for a looser fit.
