When I worked for a German company, my coworker Silke was so very precise in her clothing choices that it was somewhat astonishing to me. A designer piece marked down to $5? She wouldn’t buy it if it was half an inch too long in the sleeves. The precision of this jacket’s fit - simplicity yet elegance - remindes me of her.

The Alchemy yarn is breathtaking and a joy to knit, too! Knitting the mohair-silk blend as a carry-along with the silk/wool adds an interesting texture without being too over the top.
