I then worked a vest all in one piece, opening in the front. When it was finished I tried it on and it was huge. It didn't fit any other family members and even my Mum shunned it, so I hid it away in the cupboard, feeling very guilty about the cost of the special wool from Jamieson and Smith in Scotland. It really was a big deal, I remember very clearly!
The other day when I was having a forage around in the cupboard I came upon the hapless vest and decided to give it another life.
