I hope you all have a really wonderful Christmas. Enjoy your time with friends and family, and take care on the roads if you're travelling.
I'll be back soon - thanks for all your wonderful comments and suggestions in the last year. I'll do my best to keep on bringing you interesting projects and new colours in the year to come.
Well, here it is, the project in all its glory. It's been sitting in a little pile on one of the couches for a couple of weeks, waiting for the right-sized person to come and pose in it for me. And here she is - the lovely Laura!
She loved the hat and mitts particularly - and would probably have appreciated the waistcoat more if it hadn't been 27 Celsius that day!
More photos below - in the detail photo you can see the lace pattern of the original jersey, on the back of the mitts.
I really do need to steam the armhole trim - it would lie a lot flatter if it were properly finished.
