Don't you hate that notcheap13. I finished the right side of the jacket the other night and went to bed. When I started working on the left I realized I had randomly added 3 rows to the right side- it was way too long. I have no idea what I was thinking. Otherwise, I'm coming along swimmingly. Starting on my last sleeve!

Well, I'm almost done the back, which is great news. But, my Mom saw the pattern and I'm now setting mine aside to make one for her for Mother's Day. I crochet terribly slow, so wish me luck. Grin

I finished! I'll post a picture when I figure out what cord actually goes to my camera, grrr. I ended up changing the sleeves, making them shorter and gathered. I also managed to inflame my carpal tunnel. Looks like I'm going to have to take it easy on the crochet for a while, maybe only 4 hours a day instead of 8!

Way to GO!!!!
I have not gotten so far.  My boss seems to think I should go to work instead of crocheting!  Embarrassed
Then I was on jury duty and we could not bring anything to do but sit on the bench and listen to him talk.   Undecided
Can not wait to see the photos

Is anyone still doing this CAL?  I started this jacket about the first of May out of TLC Plus (brick red color).  Intend to give it to my sister-in-law, who is tiny, so I'm making a small.

Where are those FO pics you guys?  I am on my last sleeve and need some inspiration!

PS - love the idea of doing this in Sugar-n-Cream.  May do that for myself - I, too, need a plus size Cheesy

I am still working on this. I've been delayed because I'm in the process of moving. I have been having trouble with the raglan shaping on the front. Do you do the double, double, triple dec all the way thru?

YAY!  Just got some Sugar n Cream on sale so I'm starting tonight. My gauge keeps coming out a bit too big and all my hooks are who knows where, so I think I'll just go one size down.

I really wanted a bright yellow or orange jacket, but they didn't have either, so I got the white and I'm toying with the idea of dyeing (sp?) it afterward.  We'll see!
