Lovely Anne Marie, who I met yesterday at Three Black Sheep, agreed to model the jacket for me. It's good to know that it looks great even on a petite figure. But then what doesn't?
It's all very exciting. This jacket is proving to be a hit, and I have three readers already interested in having me knit one for them. At last I have REASONS to be knitting. I already have the yarn and the desire to make stuff, but needed a recipient. Here are some yarn combos that I feel will make a wonderful garment. To get the right effect, one of the yarns should be multicolored and the other can be a solid. In the original, both were multis. The interested parties can email me with their color choice. I'll gladly knit a swatch sample to make the final decision easier.
