After 7 months of on and off knitting, I finally finished my Tilted Duster! It fits so well and will be perfect for a fall to early winter jacket, and a sweater in the coldest months.  Too bad I now have to wait all spring and summer to really wear it Tongue

The yarn is a green tweed that one of the gals in my knitting group gave to me.  So generous!! I used wooden toggles for buttons...the perfect choice, in my opinion.  They really go well with the style of sweater and the color of the yarn Smiley

Details:
Dates: Oct 10-May 11
Needles: US size 6, 8 and 9, Denise Interchangeables
Yarn: Knitting Fever Gaelic Aran, color 74 tweed
Pattern: Tilted Duster by Norah Gaughan, Interweave Knits Fall 2007
Size: 36"
Mods: made sleeves longer, armhole depth was done in the next biggest size.

Pictures, yay! (please disregard the fact I need a hair cut like whoa) I included a goofy one, because, well, I'm a goofball  Wink  Thanks for looking!!!

Yay for finishing it!  It looks nice! 

I've been wanting to make myself a jacket too and thought the same thing about having to wait so long before I could actually wear it.

Thank you! Cheesy

I bet if you start one now it will be ready in time for fall! I always do this: I'm inspired to knit wintry things in the winter, so I never get around to finishing them up until the season is over! Same thing with spring/summer knits.  You would think it would be easy to knit winter things in the summer, but for some reason, it never works out that way for me, lol.
