Yes indeed, it's finished. It took me 20 days to knit, proably since I didn't knit in the round.

I am really happy with it, and I will probably use it quite a bit. I am obsessed with jackets or kofter these days.
My husband has printed the pattern for a kofte at his work, but I don't remember which it is,so that will surely be a surprise.

I feel the pictures are a little weird, the angle doesn't look right, but you can surely see the colours.
Also, the buttons are different as you can see from the closeup.

 Some facts about this one:
Pattern made by "the needle lady" and I bought the Norwegian Magazine Familien where I found it.

I have used :Stylecraft Special DK (yep, pure acrylics)
Needles: size 3.5 mm
I used 520 grams in size large.

The buttons were given to me, they all came from Nan at Stitching time in Hamilton.

I guess that is all for today. I have hidden a coupe of loose ends inside the jacket, so I have a little job to do later tonight :)

Now, do take care of yourselves, especially those that experience alot of snow. Here in Central Scotland we have none. Just as well as we lead busy lives me and my family.

For dinner we are having lamb, it has been cooking in the slowcooker since this smells yummy...!

Take care lovelies <3 p="">
