Back is done!

The Jean Frost jacket is coming along. I have finished the back and started the left front. Here's the progress although the color isn't particularly good. I think the knitted fabric will be just what I wanted.

I'm planning to short row bust darts into the fronts of the jacket, since I am larger busted than I wish I was. I'm using Maggie Righetti's book, Sweater Design in Plain English, to help design the darts. Let's just hope I can pull it off.

I'm enjoying being a part of this knitalong and viewing everyone's projects. Red is a favorite color (my kitchen is painted red) so I'm all for the world having more red sweaters!
