'these are not the 'droids you are looking for...'



Old Ben would be proud to wear this amazing jacket. I just finished my 'Kenobi Jacket' from Interweave Knits. This was a wonderful knit, easy, fun and engaging. The stitch patterns change to keep it from becoming tedious and look great. I used Cashsoft dk in the color 'poison', a dark purple/maroon. I almost always wear black so I stepped outside of my color box for this one! It does not fit me in the length as much as it does the model (maybe because I look quite different from the model) but it still fits quite well. I did not put buttons on it, I am planning on either leaving it open or using a shawl pin to keep it closed. This yarn is so snuggly that it feels like a soft blanket....yummy!
