An FO!! I broke down and took photographs of myself this after noon thanks to my handy dandy new remote control!! So cool! I’m sure you’re ready for some photography, huh?
Pattern: Nantucket Jacket by Norah Gaughan from Interweave Knits, Winter 2006.
Yarn: Ella Rae Classic
Needles: US 7, had to go down two needle sizes to get gauge.
Mods: I knit the body in the round, then separated the fronts from the back. Worked the sleeves flat, but at the same time and made full length.
Overall I love this jacket. It really looks like a jacket too! The bottom is big, which I believe everyone complains about. Super warm and squishy, just like a great fall/winter knit should be!
I’m positive my neighbors, esp the gentlemen mowing his lawn, thought I was nuts but the front porch offered the best light this afternoon. By the time the photo session was over I was so hot, I had to run in and take it off. I certainly don’t want to felt all my hard work! LOL!!
I have one more FO to show you too! Caveman’s Cabled Socks!!
I finished these in less time, but all those cables really made things move slowly. I’ve already cast on for a new pair, but this time I’m making one sock at a time. The yarn is self patterning and if I make two at a time the pattern goes in opposite directions. Not cool.
I’ll be back with more tomorrow, some news and a meme!!
