I have been documenting the progress of my Magnum Opus, Dad’s crochet waistcoat, on my blog since I first started it back in October. The last I posted about it and showed photos was when it had started to take shape back at the end of November. I’d documented this pretty freely but I didn’t remember to post pictures of the buttons I’d chosen!
Yesterday my sister, nephew, niece and I travelled to Kent to visit my Dad & StepMum for a pre-Christmas get together. Before dinner we exchanged Christmas gifts; I gave my StepMum her Wingspan, which she was very happy with, and I gave Dad the waistcoat. He was absolutely delighted with it, as I thought he would be. And this morning he posed for some photos for me:
It fits him perfectly! Janet, our (your!) measurements were spot on.
These are the buttons I chose:
I am so pleased with this!
And yes, I do take after him… Two peas in a pod!
