Here’s the jacket midway along, wrong sides out. There are just five main pattern pieces and 30 steps. This is pinned for step #14. It’s a gray wool blend with China silk for the lining, and it’s going well so far.


I added buttons to this Sunshine Top for variety.


The Dusty Cedar one needs some handwork yet, as does the gray jersey top. Two pairs of pants and one top finished, two more tops nearly complete. Once I finish the jacket I’ll be halfway through the SWAP.

I dusted the living room for the HGP and sorted out my gift pile. I have something for all but one of my family members and several have enough gifts. I have my Christmas cards bought and I made chili and put half in the freezer, so I’m making good progress on the HGP as well as the SWAP.
