The Gallery Jacket is ready to be revealed! Sorry for the delay, there was the little matter of finishing off the semester which required my attention :P
Here it is posed with my great aunt's gorgeous painting which belongs in an art gallery :)
I like how versatile this sweater is. I can wear it closed (as above) or open. I also tried pinning it higher up like Julie did with hers. It looks good no matter what I do with it :)
Pattern: Gallery Jacket from WEBS designed by Cirilia Rose
Yarn: Valley Yarns Colrain (coincidentally also from WEBS)
Date started: early November?
Date finished: December 1, 2007
Modifications: the biggest one is that I made it with long sleeves. I knew I wouldn't wear it with short sleeves so I just kept knitting. Oy! Sleeves take a long time to knit. It felt like they went on forever. The 1x1 ribbing got tiring pretty quickly as well. But I am so happy with the end result that it was all worthwhile.
The Colrain knit up gorgeously. It's soft and shiny (due to the tencel). I don't know how well it will wear but I definitely want more.
By the way, I seem to have mislead you in my previous post. I don't have classes until March but I don't have three months vacation. I will be doing an internship at the local orchestra for January and February as part of my program. I'm very excited about it. I'm sure that it will be a fantastic experience.
I'm at my parents' right now and I was finally able to get pictures of the finished log cabin blanket, but that will wait for another day (I'm trying to draw out the blog fodder :P)
