Nancy's Jacket





 The finished jacket, for Nancy, is made of Wooly Stripes and hand dyed merino worsted. It is so soft and squishy and perfect for the coolest autumn day. The drape is excellent and it had plenty of spring. It's my favorite so far, but then I feel that way about all of the things I knit!

  3. I would like to try mitered knitting and I'm wondering how you attach your blocks together. Do you sew them or pick up stitches to begin the next block? Love all of your sweaters!

  4. Mz Melody, do you have any idea of how you're torturing those of us that procrastinated too long to get on your sweater list? Do you? Huh? We have to see gorgeous sweater after gorgeous sweater with no chance of having one of our own. Let me tell you - it's awful!

    I'll bet Nancy will wear this as soon as she gets it even if it's 100 degrees out.
