Let me just say this first:  WHOOOOOOOO-HOOOOOOOOO! 

Ahem.  She is done.  The Bed Jacket from Jennie Atkinson's Romantic Style.  Here you go... I need a smoothie.

The Bed Jacket
Yarn: Farmhouse Yarns Silk Spun Cotton (I don't think they're making it anymore), 7 skeins (200 yards/100 grams), in Butter
Needles: US 8 24" circular
Time: Mid-April to June 20, 2007
Customs: None, I stuck to the pattern on this one.







This would normally go in the KAL thread... but no one looks over there... and I just HAD to share. 

Editing to add the original from the book:

Very lovely and very vintage-y looking.  I reeeeally want that book, it looks like it has a lot of good patterns in it.  And yay for one year anniversaries on Craftster!  It's mine also.

That looks fabulous!!  You did a great job.  It's so pretty.  This is on my list out of the book but I know it will take me forever (I'm not really a fast knitter) and I want to do the mid-length version.

Oh my goodness.  That is truly a creation of beauty!!  If I were you, I would be so proud of myself.  I also wouldn't want to keep it sequestered to the bedroom...I'd want to wear it outside and share it with the world!   Cheesy
