Thank You So Much - The Jacket Is Finished

Thank you so very much for your help and your encouragement on my last post. All that is knitted into the edges of my jacket.

Your comments kept me going through the weekend as I knitted the front line edges and the neck line all over again.

It may not be that visible in the photos but it made a huge difference in the garment.

I reduced the number of stitches on the front edges with 20 and had 152 stitches.

In addition I knitted with a smaller needle size, 2mm.

I had the same amount of stitches on the neck line - but knitted with 2mm on that too.

And this is like a new jacket. It really is. I also knitted some pattern on the inside of the edges. I also bought another cloak clasp.

It took a lot of hours to do this all over again, but the result is amazing.

I am so happy about how the jacket turned out.

And it really is like life itself: We sometimes need to go an extra mile to get where we want.

Even if it hurts and takes a lot of time. But in the end, a cheering up from a friend is fuel on the tank.

Thank you all again!!!

  9. My Google reader is all out of whack and I dont' get blog updates sometimes. I didn't see your last post until today :-(
    Wow, you sure came out on top of this crisis like a super major winner!
    The jacket is spectacular and a gorgeous piece to pass on to younger generations some day. Imagine 70 years from now your grand-daughter or even great grand-daughter wearing it
