FO: Artlady's "Yank" Peacoat
Wow, I'm so happy with this peacoat! I love everything about it! And the sleeves are the perfect length!

I'll wear this peacoat Fall/Winter 2010. I'm still losing weight, so I knit this (and all current WIPS) to fit me by Fall. PMA. The upper body fits great, but the "caboose" is still tight!

Pattern: Yank Peacoat by Bonne Marie Burns
Book: Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines
Yarn: Knit Picks City Tweed HW
Color: Romance Red



The Back










I have some Indigo Blue (alpaca/wool blend) in my stash to knit another Yank.
Not now, but later. It's called "Chunky AL" by Elsebeth Lavold. I've had it for years.

Oh, so pretty! Besides being a great knitter, you are also great with the pictures. The yarn seems to sparkle. And the buttons are the icing on the cake.
