I'm so excited to have finally knit this.  I've wanted to for a long time and bought the yarn about a year ago.  I started this in November and finished it up a few days ago.  During that time I also knit a hat, some mitts, and at least one pair of socks, so you can see that this really is a fast knit. 

I used Sheepsdown and 3-ply Sheepswool from Schoolhouse Press.  The pockets are lined with Knitpicks Telemark in Northern Green:

One of my favorite features is the snow cuffs:

The toggles were handturned by my dad from some old stumps he found out by the highschool.  I think they really make the coat. 

There's a set with more photos in my flickr and at ravelry.  Thanks for looking!

Wow! Beautiful! I love the attention to detail in the sleeves, pockets, and those wonderful, handmade toggles. Great job (to your dad too)!

Thanks everybody!  I'll probably only get to wear it like once a year, but I love it. 

aliqaesong, be sure and show yours off when you finish!  I can't wait to see it.
