Several years ago I fell in love with this crochet jacket in one of the Rowan magazines (no. 48). I couldn't resist the colours...
I bought several balls of rather gorgeous felted tweed yarn and started at the beginning of one cuff
Like I said... That was several years ago!... Well, maybe two years... Or possibly three... Or even more! It did grow fairly quickly when I actually picked it up and did it, but the trouble was I would leave it to do something else and then put off picking it up again as I needed to completely reread the pattern to find out where I had got to everytime.
But over the past couple of weeks I made a concerted effort to finish it... And then started to think about all those ends to sew in...
And boy, there were a lot of ends!
But finally last week it was finished and I think I like it! In my head it was going to transform me into the beautiful model in the magazine. Am I the only one who does that...?
So a bit disappointed it to find it hasn't transformed me into a supermodel and is still just me... but in a fancy jacket! But it is a very warm and cosy fancy jacket.
And now I might actually get around to finishing one or two other projects that have been hanging around for more than a year or two!
