Sunday, February 12

Showing off...


... my finished jacket. 

 
After my concerns that I had not made it big enough, I've been persuaded that it's rather more flattering than the one-size-fits-all version that I would have succumbed to by habit! Still, if I make another version (and I am tempted) I'll make it a little bigger and longer. I like the combination of New Lanark wool/silk aran weight with my handspun and I think a coat-of-many-handspun-stripes would please me.

And now, on this mild February morning, I'm off to the village hall to put the fire on and enjoy the company of fellow stitchers at the first Woolgathering of the year. Simple pleasures.

Yes - simple pleasures indeed, but a great day had by all.. And - just to blow your trumpet - the jacket looks even better in the flesh.

Now that is lovely - and I adore the buttons!

(We had a sunday spin-in on the same day - the 12th -over in west wales, and it was freezing. You evidently had the good weather!)
