Hey. I started this jacket about a month ago, and just found this thread. Of course, I have had to put it down for Christmas presents, but I just picked it up again this week. I am using a Paton's wool blend I got at Michael's. Usually I try to stay away from anything with acrylic in it, but the color was so perfect I couldn't help myself.
So far I'm done with the back and the two front pieces, and will be starting on the sleeves as soon as I finish this damn blanket for my brother and his new wife.
I'll post pictures when I'm done.
Speaking of, why hasn't anyone who finished this posted pictures of it?
If you are in Ravelry, there are plenty of pics of finished jkt.
