winter white jacket

Project info
Market Jacket by Tanis Gray
Coat / Jacket
Needles & yarn
US 9 - 5.5 mm
Cascade Yarns ® Eco Cloud
5.6 skeins = 918.4 yards (839.8 meters), 560 grams
Cast-On Cottage & Needlepoint Garden in Roswell, Georgia

length from underarm=13” and sleeve=10”; did one less increase for my size and cast on only 2 st under the arm. buttoned, underbust=35” (~1-1/2” positive ease)
2-8-13 …finally dry after 62 hours! Buttons sewn on. Love!!

2-5-13 - ready to block. (a bit concerned the bindoff edge on the button band is too tight…but not enough concerned to rip it and the collar and redo. blocking works miracles, right?!)

1-22-13 - ready to knit the garter edge on the body; made a smidge longer (12” instead of 11-1/2” and I think it will block to about 13” - just past my hip bone)

1-15-13 - my sweater mojo is BACK! I knit nearly a full skein (through one full repeat of the chart) today. I LOVE the pattern and the yarn…and the yarn with this pattern. yay!!!

12-21-12 - updating a few projects and realized I never entered a start date - I cast on and knit a few rows back on november 7…and I smiled reading the 11-5 update below.

11-5-12 - will cast this on as soon as I have “some” of the sleeves complete on abigail. VERY excited I found yarn in my stash (even if it meant frogging chaleur to get it!) to knit this!
