FO: Mermaid jacket
Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been around much lately, but I wanted to stop by to show off my Mermaid jacket that I finally finished.

The pattern is by Hanne Falkenberg, and you can only get it in a kit. I bought my kit from Cucumberpatch. This took forever, but it really wasn't very hard, just tedious.

I have some more notes and info on my blog.

Pretty! I like the colors!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

I actually was thinking about that kit the other day and was wondering if you ever made it. It looks gorgeous!
