This is coming along much faster than I thought it would. (I'm double-stranding both yarns.) Progress so far on the back panel:

Natasha, how's it coming so far?

Just as a little FYI about the fur substitutions. The Jaeger fur is extremely different from the fun furs that are out there. I bought five balls in England last November because it is so different from all the others. This one has a drape to it that you don't get with Lion Brand's stuff. It truly reminds me of Cookie Monster from the Muppets (if you could unravel a Muppet and then wind it into a ball, you would have Jaeger's stuff).

Your project looks amazing, BTW  Grin. I wish I had the time to knit like I used to before I started teaching full time.

Okay guys, here's my oh so exciting update. I've got the back panel completely finished, and the front left panel done not counting the collar addition.



My gauge is way off, so I kind of had to do some finagling with the pattern. I just chopped out an entire 10 lines of the pattern on each piece so they'd match. I hope it works! I tried it on as a little half-vest and it seems to fit fine so far. Whoo!

i love this jacket. it's very vintage looking. i'm ordering the pattern today. i don't have a clue what yarn or colors to use though. i need to find some that is not too expensive.  i have a black velvet jacket that is the same style that is my favorite but it doesn't fit too well anymore. so i'm excited to start this cause i haven't found me one that i like as much (or would fit Embarrassed) since. if anyone has any suggestions for some yarn it would be much appreciated.
    happy knitting everyone

I'm a bit worried about this project. I've got the vest part done, now I just need the sleeves and collar. I made a makeshift temporary seam to try it on, and it's the biggest, heaviest, bulkiest thing I've ever seen. The armholes go down to my waist because the homespun is so weighty. Maybe a sleeve seam will help a little.

I took a haitus from it for a little while so I could calm down, and I'm about to tackle the sleeves next week. Hopefully when it's finished it will be slightly less of a disaster than I fear it might be.

i've decided on violet or a plum color (not sure which one u would call it) for my jacket. i ordered the yarn for the main color. hopefully it will be in soon. it was a really good deal i bought a bag of 10 for $15.00. which only ends up being $1.50 a ball.  i haven't found the fur i'm gonna use yet. i want the fur to be a darker plum than the mc.  hopefully i can find a good deal on that too. but i have a feeling i'm not gonna be that lucky.

How's everybody doing on this? I've taken a long break from mine, I keep saying I'll pick it back up again as soon as I finish ____, but I always start some new exciting thing instead. I think maybe I'm not cut out to make such huge projects!
