FO: Artlady's "Yank" Peacoat

Wow, I’m so happy with this peacoat! I love everything about it! And the sleeves are the perfect length!

I’ll wear this peacoat Fall/Winter 2010. I’m still losing weight, so I knit this (and all current WIPS) to fit me by Fall. PMA. The upper body fits great, but the “caboose” is still tight!

Pattern: Yank Peacoat by Bonne Marie Burns
Book: Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines
Yarn: Knit Picks City Tweed HW
Color: Romance Red

The Back

I have some Indigo Blue (alpaca/wool blend) in my stash to knit another Yank.
Not now, but later. It’s called “Chunky AL” by Elsebeth Lavold. I’ve had it for years.

It’s gorgeous!!:inlove:

All your lovely coats inspire me to try and make one…not yet though I’m still scared of the massive yarn buying part…

That color is YOU!! :blooby:

Beautiful coat! Beautiful workmanship!

:cheering: :cheering: :cheering:


Oh, so pretty! Besides being a great knitter, you are also great with the pictures. The yarn seems to sparkle. And the buttons are the icing on the cake.

Wow, it is absolutely gorgeous! I love the back detail. Bet it looks great on you.

That is so pretty! You do such beautiful work!

That is just gorgeous! :heart:
You did a wonderful job!

I just love it too. Now just tell us all how did you lose weight?!

The only way I’ve EVER been able to lose weight and still BE HAPPY: good ole Weight Watchers!

Have officially lost 15lbs so far.

Absolutely beautiful! Your work is totally awesome!

That is spectacular!!! :muah: And congratulations on your WW success!!! :cheering: :cheering:
Can’t wait to see you model this gorgeous pea coat:)

Yes congratulations. :woohoo:

You know…your clothes belong in a museum…that’s how gorgeous they are!!!

What a lovely color! I, too, congratulate you on your weight loss. How wonderful that you will have all of these wonderful items hanging in your closet…waiting for you when you deem yourself ready to wear them.

You are a lovely lady…both on the inside AND outside. :hug:

This is beyond gorgeous…and you don’t try socks?:notworthy: :aww:

Another work of art!! Those are perfect peacoat buttons! Love the back detail :slight_smile:

Lovely coat, Artlady and it is going to be lovely on you come fall. I’m sure you look good in red with your dark hair. What can I say about the coat. It’s perfect in every way. We’ve come to expect it of you, you know. :slight_smile: And the buttons…:muah:

Great job!! (on the beautiful pea coat, AND the weight loss) :cheering: :cheering:
