Jacket of Many Colors
I wanted to make something real warm for my daughter and didn't have enough of one color so decided to go with stripes. The yarn is Brown Sheep Company Country Classic Thick and Thin wool. It is a bulky yarn that I used a single strand of throughout. And some old Red Heart worsted wool (the gold and trim color) that I used doubled. I put stranded work acorns in the yoke and appliques of oak leaves I knit from a single strand of the RH. She requested one pocket.

She says it is the warmest thing she has ever worn. And she said she has gotten compliments from total strangers. Makes a mother's heart sing.
