WIP: The Drops Alaska Cabled Coat
Hi!

Drops Alaska 109-3 Cabled Jacket!

It's a hoodie! And it's also Free!



This one's gonna take me a while! I've casted on, and have about 5" done. The FRONTS and BACK are knit all one 32" or 40" circular needle. I go back 'n forth between the 32" and the 40". The stitches are more crammed on the 32" but easier to 'queue' on the left-hand needle. The 40" allows the knitting to spread out more. Click here to read my Rav notes if you'd like. I'm totally OCD I think.

A Rav knitting buddy will join me soon, but for now, being a young mother of 3, she's busy busy busy with family obligations, and she's finishing up our Miss BB. We've knit the TWIST, CASSIDY, CALLUNA, CLASICA, BETTNA and MISS BB together.

I'm using City Tweed HW (Romance Red) for my Drops ALASKA:

You always choose the classiest patterns. This one will be gorgeous in that red tweed. Is this one for you or one of your daughters?

Hi Slim!

Thanks for your kind words!

No, the Alaska isn't for either of my daughters.
Maureen doesn't ever wear red, and Lauralee rarely wears red!

This one is for MOI!
