I really succeeded to finish my Christmas Santi in time! I sew in the last yarn ends the night before Christmas, and on Christmas Day I wore it proudly. During the actual "winter weather" with 55°F it really replaces a coat.
The hardest task was to find yarns in Christmas colors. The main yarn I found at Ebay, the ruffle yarn I found at ICE, and the quite matching yarn for the separating rows I found at Atelier Zitron.
Santi is a fast and easy knit. You don't have to know about short rows before you start it. Up to Dec 31st the pattern is still half price with €2.50, after then it will cost 5€.
Santi gibt es in meinen Ravelry Store.

Thank you to Oliver for taking the photos. He is a 6 ft 5" man, so the point of view is quite different :).
Sabine (biene116 on Ravelry) hat mir die Erlaubnis gegeben, ihren Santi auch hier zu zeigen: Sie hat ihn aus einem der Garnsets der Drachenwolle in Rekordzeit genadelt. Ist der nicht wunderschön??!!
