Thank you!

To answer your questions, the yarn is some cheap local (Estonian) brand called Maali. It's 100 % wool and kind of scratchy, but still wearable. I hope. Gotta love cheap, gotta love local!

It was not very difficult. It's true that the pattern was a bit confusing. Knitting on bias could have been explained more clearly, I think. But it was, em, knittable.

Oh, and about the colour - the pictures are probably showing it wrong, it is actually not a lovely red, but, you know, sort of bear brown. I'm OK with it, though.

It is lovely!!  And it fits really well.  Fall feels over where I am at, but I think it would make a great Fall jacket (no over coat needed!)

I too am totally upset that they are taking the servers down to fix things. Why can't they just let things stay broken? I don't care if I can't move due to lag or if quests are bugged. If I leave my room my mom may make me get a job.
