Just a quick post to show you all my progress on the flair jacket. I have to knit for about another inch or two and then I can switch over to the seed stitch border. THEN I can start my sleeves. I’m scared of the sleeves because people keep telling me about how they go on forever however, at the same time I’m super excited.
I have noticed that I apparently have a super long torso because I’ve had to add a bunch of inches onto the bottom of this jacket to get it hit my hip.
I’ve also cast on these mesh gloves (you can download the pattern for free at interweave.com) with Debbie Bliss Pure Silk. My Jane Austen ravelry group is doing another KAL and this time we’re reading Northanger Abbey and we have to knit something gothic. I thought if I knit these little gloves in black they’d work. I was super excited by them and cast on as soon as I got home tonight. I should not have done this. My brain still hasn’t recovered from tax time because I messed up when I joined them in the round everything got all messed up so I’m just going to frog the whole thing and start again on Saturday morning when my brain is up and functioning again. They should knit up quickly so I’m not worried about my time. On a positive note, the yarn is flipping fantastic!
Ok back to the jacket. I really want to finish this thing soon.
