I completed the Debbie Bliss Drop Collar Jacket, and was happy to get some pictures before a rainy weekend hits us.
I am pleased with the results. I love my new jacket. It has not left me since I finished blocking it.
Despite the small frustration of running out of yarn, this was so much fun to knit. I took it slow, only worked on it while the babes were sleeping, and tried very hard to enjoy the seaming. This was my first big seaming project, and I am pretty happy with the results.
The yarn is so delicious. It knits up fast, and is so soft after blocking. I thought it might be a bit itchy, but feels like cotton on bare my skin.
Pattern: Debbie Bliss Drop Collar Jacket from the Debbie Bliss Knitting Magazine Fall/Winter 08
Size: 36, I do think it runs a little big. If I had to do it over, I would do a size smaller.
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Donegal Chunky Tweed, color 112, 9 skeins.
The color I used has been discontinued, but it is still available. I am also smitten with the forest green! I ran out of yarn, so make sure you buy one extra skein.
Happy, happy Friday!
