The Jacket of Many Stitches

I promised pictures of the jacket being worn, so here they are!

We had some nice weather, and the Jacket smiles in nice weather. The hat is by Felt by Bridget, bought some years ago at the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show.

The necklace came from Harrogate too – a stone pendant, with a cord I made myself in kumihimo. It’s the green and orange one on this page.

And finally, another view of the masks!

    The jacket is both beautiful and charming; I imagine you have received many compliments and that people have wanted to explore all of the intricate designs! Love that hat, too. You are a walking advertisement for the arts & crafts movement and William Morris!

  5. Kathy says:

    The jacket must draw lots of admiring comments, and temptation to non socially distant peering!! it looks beautiful. I love the way the trailing stems wander around your shoulders and down the arms; an embroidered hug 🙂

  6. Lyn Warner says:

    Your jacket is beautiful! The first thing that came to mind was “Please turn around so I can see how the design continues on the other side.”

  7. Alex Hall says:

    Absolutely glorious and such a harmonious design now it can be seen in all it’s glory. I hope you enjoy wearing it as much as you enjoyed stitching it!

  8. It is going to be difficult to practise social distancing with such a beautiful jacket. EVERYONE will can’t to come up close to look at the many stitches and the wonderful designs.
    The jacket indeed looks great in sunshine, and the hat is the perfect match. So, of course, are the three masks. WELL DONE; Rachel.
