Went on 10-day mountain trip with DH, and managed to finish up my Williamette Jacket! The hardest part for me was the "applied i-cord" along the front edges, collar and inset pockets. Applied i-cord is a new concept for me...never worked it before...avoided it...
...but as it worked out...now I'm in love with it! I watched a couple of great YouTube videos before we left, and a lady showed an interesting way of adding applied i-cord to the edges of a blanket...and she picked up ALL THE STITCHES along the edge of the blanket FIRST...then worked her applied i-cord off those stitches one by one.
Anyhoo, I'm very happy with the results!
FYI: I had to do the Right Side i-cord band TWICE cuz I placed the buttonslits wrong...:doh:...and I had to do one of the pocket bands THREE times cuz I kept getting it inside out. It's tricky.
My Ravelry notes, if you'd care to read the details...:happydance:
