FO: Drops Eskimo Jacket...


Pattern: 103-1 Jacket in Eskimo or Silke-Alpaca with A-shape by DROPS design
Yarn: Gjestal Naturgarn No. 1 (5 hanks)
Needles: US11/8mm KnitPicks Options
Time: 2 weeks

Notes: I *love* this jacket. As I was knitting it, I wasn't sure how the smurfy blue would look, but the color grew on me. Very easy, quick knit and very cozy. There are some parts of the pattern that are a bit vague, but as long as you keep notes on where you are and what you're doing, it works out.

I'm trying to work my way through my immediate queue (i.e. the projects that already have yarn for them) and, by extension, my stash. On the needles at the moment is the Tilted Duster. The pieces are going pretty quickly, but I imagine the skirt will slow down progress. Venezia has been stalled mainly because I'm color-worked out. I'm hoping to get back into it soon, but it doesn't look too likely at the moment.

In the not-so-immediate queue, I've added Coraline by Ysolda. There's also a familiar link in the pattern. It's nice to know that something I put together can be helpful.
