Kathleen's Jacket

The latest jacket is now finished. This one is for Kathleen P. and is a mix of Plymouth Kudo, : 55% cotton, 40% rayon, 5% silk  and Cascade Avalon, 50% Cotton, 50% Acrylic . The mannequin makes it so easy to see the knit without the usual distracting model, me.

  3. The sweater drapes beautifully on the mannequin, but it doesn't have your personality. Love the colors. Judith P.

  4. Beautiful! I do have one question. Are you blocking these after you've finished knitting or does the knit stitch keep the shape well enough?

  5. Jean, since this is not wool, I am using a press cloth and steaming the piece, from the inside. It works great and is really necessary.
