FO: Noro "Chirimen" Bettna Coat
Yeah, I knit a 6th Bettna. I tell you, I really love this design. It works so well with so many variegated colorways!

This yarn is DK / 8 ply / 60% Cotton, 24% Silk, 16% Wool, and is warm, yet cool. Very light and airy feeling. I had so much fun working with the colorway! Had to manipulate the skeins more than once by removing the solid black a few times.

Anyway, I promise to model it for you, but not today. I'm a wreck, and doin' good to get the photo done at all. I need a hair cut and color, too. Ack.

Here it is:






I'm going to wear it tonight, with a wool (knit) charcoal heather-grey skirt and black top. I'm also going to knit a cami/tank to go with it, using Silky Wool but haven't gotten to it yet. Here is the Silky Wool, color "coffee bean #54":


Here are my Ravelry notes, if you care to investigate this knit!

Love it! The colors are great and I am sure the rest of the outfit is going to really show it off.

It looks very nice. Are you just going to wear it open in front, or does it have a zipper I can't see? Usually you have cool buttons, but I don't see any. Just wondering.
