Ah, you're so nice! Thanks for the votes of confidence! :hug:
It is a GREAT COAT...but alas, two-color knitting (such as Double Knitting and Fair Isle Knitting) drives me bonkers. I've tried Fair Isle, and additionally, simple two-color stranded knitting...and it's the tension issue that drives me up-the-wall and over-the-cliff.
Being sorta OCD about surface appearance (RS)...if my stranding tension is off, and the RS is puckering, drawn or wonky...I'm :wall: and :hair: and !!
With double knitting, I'd have two sides driving me :zombie: and :waah:!
I can't remember seeing a more handsome coat and hat set!
They are truly KNITTED WORKS of ART!
Naw, this coat will have to be knit by a Fair Isle girl! Someone who already has her dk mojo goin'!
