Susan's Jacket

Some bathroom shots of me in Susan's just finished jacket. I am loving this combination of Araucania Nature Wool Multi and Lion Brand Amazing (Strawberry Fields colorway). Just enough color to make it interesting and not garish. The fabric is light and would you believe FLUFFY? Yes. Love how it hangs closed with no fasteners!

I have the sleeves pinned up in the second shot, which always looks dopey, but I wanted to show the body.

Susan lives in Las Vegas, and I have heard the desert gets rather cool in the fall and winter, so this will go a long way towards keeping her warm and snuggly.
I've begun Joan S's jacket which is Malabrigo Rios merino and Debbie Bliss Fez, merino and 15% camel. Yummy, so yummy to knit.

I am on my way into town to pick up the new bathroom sink for Dave. And then I am having lunch with my friend and fellow art quilter Mary.

Tomorrow I will let you in on the art quilt collaboration with the first person on my Make Me a Quilt List:  Elaine.
The list is still open, but I will need your email address or I can't contact you. So email me, fibermania at g mail dot com if you want to be added. I don't see any reason to stop adding names, since each person is giving me a real REASON to make a quilt!
BTW I have been getting lots of questions on my worktable. Here it is. Mine came with wheels I believe...or I got some at Ace hardware...can't remember.
