8 months later….

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!!

  7. Great FOs, particularly the jacket. I saw it at the IK booth at Stitches last year, and loved the design. It looks great on you.

    I have just read the part of my manual that discusses the timer, and I’m dying to use it. I think my neighbors already think I’m a little soft in the head when I bring out my paraphernalia for photos and then just shoot pictures of (gasp!) knitting.

  9. Your sweater turned out beautifully! I love the color, too, and it looks great on you! I also like the socks! Wish my DH would ask me to knit him socks…he doesn’t want any…he’s already let me know in advance… (lol)

  11. well worth the 8 months! the jacket looks great and is a perfect color for you. The cables turned out great. I don’t think it looks big at the bottom – the ease will be good for layering in cold weather. Looks great!
