Ski Jacket

Hi! I'm new to the KAL, but I love me a good red sweater so I look forward to seeing everyone's completed projects!

Surprisingly, even though red is one of my favourite colours, this is my first hand knitted red sweater. It's the Ski Jacket from Veronik Avery's "Knitting Classic Style", and I'm knitting it out of Lopi in "happy red".

This is my first colourwork project as well, and I've just reached the part of the yoke where the colour pattern begins. I'm very excited about this project, and I think the colours in the yoke will contrast very well with the red. If I can get this done soon, it will be perfect for cool spring evenings.

Welcome to the KAL. What a great first pic for your red sweater! I have that book but haven't done anything from it, yet. I'm new to colorwork, too but find it pretty addictive. lol.

Your red jacket is gorgeous so far! Have fun with the color work. It can be very rewarding. :-)
