I am doing a sort of round up post of my recent completed projects because I haven't been on in a while.


Here is the Tilted Duster I just completed. The pattern can be found at: http://shop.interweave.com/store/Tilted-Duster-P198C27.aspx?AFID=12
I used the recommended yarn (Berroco Peruvia) in Avocado. My observations on the project can be read here: http://roadyjane.blogspot.com/2008/10/tilted-duster.html



I also have finished my A-Line Jacket from "Runway Knits":




And finally, I made these "Campfire Socks" (free pattern can be found at: http://www.cidermoon.com/cm0120.html

Wow!
Those are great! I knit two dusters, and they didn't come out nearly as nice as yours did. I'm horrible at placing buttons....Love the colours you chose (buttons vs. yarn colour).
Very nice!

Those are all great! I haven't seen that A-line jacket from Runway Knits before - it's really nice. What is the yarn? Your Tilted Duster came out quite well too.

For the A-Line Jacket, I used Burly Spun yarn. It's huge, but was still a little smaller than their yarn (which would have been really expensive). So I had to use size 17 needles.
