Weekend FO

It's finished!

Pattern: Alice Starmore's Elizabeth I, from Tudor Roses (2013)
Yarn: fivemoons Comet, 40% merino, 40% angora, 20% nylon - nearly 4 skeins (1600m)
Needle: 3mm, 2.75mm
Mods: I knitted it in the round after I'd shaped the curved hems on the body and sleeves. I added extra length to the body and the sleeves.

I was a bit worried it was going to be way too warm to wear, but weirdly it doesn't seem to be so far. It is really snuggly, but not stifling. I assume that's because it's 4-ply; it's the first 4-ply garment I've knitted that I will be getting wear out of, I think. make a start on Catherine Howard...
