JS Quick Knit Jacket
Finally finished, and being express posted today for my sisters birthday TOMORROW! I honestly am not sure what I think of this piece. The yarn is gorgeous of course, but after hearing about it's propensity to stretch, I'm a tad nervous that a muggle isn't going to be able to look after it. It's not a great shape either - actually it's probably more user error than anything, that the shoulders are a bit 'puffy'. Anyhoo, it's done and it's something I won't have to worry about once it's left my care.
Pattern from Jo Sharp Knit 3, knit with 2 strands of Silkroad DK tweed in 'autumn' colour on 8mm needles (i think?). My only mod was to make the RS out.. i don't like the look of ws out (and yes that is a rosewood dpn holding it together until I can rush down to the LYS to buy a proper pin!)
