You make me laugh. Your work is perfect even when still in pieces. Very soft, pretty colors too.

The five pieces hit the blocking boards yesterday!

The sleeves were the biggest challenge. Didn't like my original cuffs, and the width of that sleeve was too poofy. The next version...the sleeve was still too long. Long story short...I think I must have knit 4 sleeves to get two good ones!

More aggravation...the first buttonband wasn't to my liking. It didn't have enough stitches in it! So re-did that, too! We're talkin' 181 stitches for this coat!

Finishing: collar application, seaming, and buttons!

It's going to be a really beautiful, one of a kind sweater-coat. Can't wait to see it modeled.
