I confess that I was attracted to the texture of the yarn, however because its a big chunky jacket, it looks big and chunky, so not the most slimming garment I have knitted lol.
Still it will be cosy when I want to snuggle up in something warm, so not all is lost.
I have quite a bit of wool left over because this came as a pack to cater for sizes small (the size I knitted ) to large so I will have to think of something to knit. At the moment cushions came to mind - as I said with the combination of the feather wool and the other two mixed together, its quite a tactile fabric.
Ok, knitting finished, my D Mike just left to catch a flight to Germany so I now need to start my next project - another memento cushion for my other friend's baby.
Catch you later......................
