Too Many Green Apples Will Give You a Tummy Ache

 It's done!  It's done! After being a neglected UFO for the better part of 5 1/2 years, it's done!

And I adore it!  I don't know why I kept putting this aside.  I love the combination of turquoise and apple green.  I love the soothing repetition of garter stitch.  I love how slimming the style of this jacket is.  So what kept me from finishing it for so long?  Seriously, this might be the longest it has ever taken me to finish a knit project.  We won't talk about the quilts, lol.

It can be worn open.

 Or closed.  No, I won't hold it closed with a dpn.  I'll find a beautiful shawl pin.

I think I like the back of these jackets the most.

And the pinstripe down the sleeves is a nice touch!  I'm going to wear this as much as possible this fall/winter.  This one is so much more fun than the blue/grey/black one I made first.

Since I finished this week's knit project, I went to the handy random number generator to pick out a new project to concentrate on for the rest of the week.  It chose a lacy little stole/scarf that I cast on last fall.  It took me a few minutes to figure out where in the pattern I was, but I'm now knitting happily away on this.


  1. Wow! That's beautiful!!!!! Great job:)

  2. I love wearing my jacket like that you made for my birthday a few years ago. Comfortable warm, and draws a lot of comments!
