Well the jacket is finished. It has been a great learning project for me. I genuinely believe the next jacket will be wearable, but this one just doesn't quite make it. DH likes it, but I don't feel comfortable wearing it out in public. The sleeve caps still have a little too much ease, the collar is a little lopsided and the bottom front sags. I will definitely make this jacket out of a better fabric.
I've also signed up for Shannon Gifford's stitch and flip jacket class. I'm looking forward to that.
In the meantime, I'm working on a jumper. I know, I know. I'm too old to wear jumpers.
