This may take awhile.


I've started my jacket from the Knitting Experience, The Knit stitch by Sally Melville. I am doing the Best-Friend Jacket on page 66. It is knit in garter stitch from cuff to cuff, making adjustments to the width of the sleeve, I have left out a dozen stitches and intend to make it with no more increases. The sleeve is very deep in the pattern and join up halfway down my ribcage and I don't need the extra bulk in that area. This is a hand dyed cotton, thick and thin yarn from Chile by Araucania Yarns, Patagonia number 212. It will be interesting to see what the next ball of yarn will be like colourwise.
