So this is what I was doing yesterday. I'm very happy with the outcome so far. Even though I've known how to sew for years, I never made myself a jacket before. I guess I was intimidated by the whole process. I'm not now. This pattern was a wonderful choice and I will be attempting more jackets/blazers in the future. I still have to hem the sleeves and finish hemming the collar on the inside. Hopefully I'll have pictures of me in it later in the week along with a pattern review.
Now back to some major knitting.
