I blame my 'need' to really get to grips with continental knitting for this!! I've been knitting like crazy and am now very, very comfortable with this method of wielding knitting paraphernalia!!!
In fact I've actually already worn it and it fits a treat and is very comfortable.
You can see I managed to sort the pockets too and they were actually very easy and add a bit of interest to what is otherwise a very plain waistcoat.
Now, what shall I do next? Who knows!!!
