the Mo Jacket

It's done and being worn, and I even have crappy pictures to prove it! The lighting in our office bathroom at 7am sucks, and taking one's own picture in a mirror is not easy.
And just to prove that I DO love my flip flops - here's my footwear on a day where I'm wearing a mohair sweater, shirt and t-shirt:
I meant to take a picture of it on the mannequin to show it a bit better, but I ran out of time last night.
I think I'm going to wind the green mix mohair and make this again - I may make it a touch longer, since the green mohair has a bit more yardage, and I will probably change the collar to something a little less prominent, but otherwise - a great pattern.

Looks fantastic! And so cozy this morning!

Wow you're fast! It looks great! I started a similar cardigan on New Year's Eve, using Patons Divine, and although I've worn it, it lacks a zipper or other closure. I was disappointed in how it made me look like a pile of fuzzy dirt. But the colours in your jacket are great!

Bring it on Tuesday please - maybe you'll inspire me to knit mine (or actually the DD's, since it's for her. Hey, maybe that's why it's languishing in my knitting basket!!!)

Wow - gorgeous! You're faster than an LK150. Looks wonderfully cozy for fall and winter and I love the colours. I can't wait to fondle it in person on Tuesday night.

I just came in from the cold rain and instantly felt warmer when I saw the first two shots of the fabulously cozy looking sweater...UNTIL I saw the next shot of your bare feet! Aren't you freezing?

Mohair and flip flops! Too funny. Though I am a complete wimp. today I bought new winter boots. As in , snow stompin', snow shovelin' winter boots. Sigh.
