It may still be hanging around, but when you see these, springtime can't be too far away.
Thanks to those who encouraged me. I learned a lot and think I might get back on that horse and do another one right away before I forget everything.
One funny thing (now, not then) was that I understitched the lining of the yoke just perfectly and was so proud of it. At some point after I had gotten it all together, I looked at the neck and that neat understitching was on the outside. I have no idea how that happened, well some idea, but it didn't make me happy. That's one reason for the fuzziness of the neck. Maybe I'll get that tatting done to put there to disguise it! I have about 3 inches of it done so far. I'm not a fast tatter.
