Just joining

Hi, I'm just joining the RSKAL as of today! Actually consider myself a member for the last week, since I chose the yarn and pattern. I wanted it to be more like a jacket so I chose a pattern from my Jean Frost Jackets book. Here is a scanned photo from the book.

I chose to work with Elegance from Knit Picks in the color Barn Red. This yarn is 70%Baby Alpaca and 30% Silk, soft with a bit of shine. I think it is turning out well. I cast on this afernoon and knit straight through the Super Bowl, so I've made some progress with the back.

I have a couple of other projects on the needles and one that needs to be finished - weaving in the ends and buttons, so I don't know how fast I will finish this one. Neverthelss, hope others join the KAL. Everyone's projects are so interesting, diverse and beautiful!

Welcome to the group! That's going to be one fabulous jacket. Love the shade of red. Oooh.

Love the gorgeous, elegance (and elegant :) red) and the Jean Frost jacket. Keep us posted. I'm interested in how you like the elegance yarn.

Oh I really like that - I am particularly fond of jackets, and I like a lot of the classic cuts, like this one. Nice stitch patterning too.
