FO: Artlady's "Yank" Peacoat
Wow, I'm so happy with this peacoat! I love everything about it! And the sleeves are the perfect length!

I'll wear this peacoat Fall/Winter 2010. I'm still losing weight, so I knit this (and all current WIPS) to fit me by Fall. PMA. The upper body fits great, but the "caboose" is still tight!

Pattern: Yank Peacoat by Bonne Marie Burns
Book: Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines
Yarn: Knit Picks City Tweed HW
Color: Romance Red

The Back

I have some Indigo Blue (alpaca/wool blend) in my stash to knit another Yank.
Not now, but later. It's called "Chunky AL" by Elsebeth Lavold. I've had it for years.

All your lovely coats inspire me to try and make one....not yet though I'm still scared of the massive yarn buying part...

Oh, so pretty! Besides being a great knitter, you are also great with the pictures. The yarn seems to sparkle. And the buttons are the icing on the cake.
