...that my WIPS are down to three! Wow, what a good feeling!

CLASICA #1 (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ArtLady/clasica-coat)(this one is for me...needs blocking & seaming)
CLASICA #2 (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ArtLady/clasica-coat-2) (for DD....pieces in progress)
SYLVI (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sylvi) (needs lining)

My Sylvi (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ArtLady/sylvi)has been in progress since January 31, 2009! :doh:
I had her all seamed and ready-to-wear, but the yarn I used stretched under the sheer weight of the coat, and my sleeves looked like mountain gorilla arms. So I need to line the yokes and sleeves. It's been sitting there all summer. I have the lining, but no inspiration. Had to pull out all the seaming, frog the collar...and I'm looking at all the pieces folded up in a stack, with the chiffon lining on top!

it's beautiful! I actually prefer your choice of colour since the cables stand out more!

you have to finish it so you can stun everyone when you wear it!
