I started this about a month ago, with some great yarn I got at the Farmer's market. It knit up really quick on size 10 needles.
It is a jacket, so it was a little bigger than I was used to. I got nervous and thought it might be too big, but I think it will be all right. The sizes went from 32, to 39 1/2. I am a 36, so of course I went for the larger size. I thought it might be too frumpy, but I would rather that than have it be too small to button up.
Yarn: Bartlett yarn, midnight blue about 6 hanks.
Mods: None! I stick to the pattern, it was easy to read and I love the original design.
I started another project this weekend. Something in cotton. I will have more details later this week.
