My stylish mum!

A project that I co-worked with mum, for six months. My design, but mum knitted the skirt herself and I knitted the jacket. The skirt had a ready plan, but the design for jacket grew with the project.

Yarn is Millefili Spa, a cashmere/wool blend – a real joy to knit! I used 2mm needles while mum used 2,5mm needles, I have so much looser gauge than most... The jacket “ate” 380g (size XXL) and if I remember correct the skirt “ate” about 300g. And there is still left some yarn for my own use!
