The Hedera Jacket, Finished Object #3

WDTW = Workin' Down the WIPs, the Ravelry Group for those of us who want to complete a few of our lingering Works in Progress.

My personal goal was to complete 3 projects before buying more yarn/fiber or starting a new project. It turns out that the 3 projects that I chose were not small and each needed quite a bit of work.

Finished Object #1 was the Haapsalu Shawl. So much lace in such fine yarn took a lot of concentration and patience, especially for the edging which was knit separately and sewn on.

FO #2 was 4 yards of woven fabric. The weaving seemed like it was going quickly, but getting to the end of the warp took longer than I anticipated. It's off the loom now and will eventually be sewn into cushions.

FO #3 was finished on Thursday. It is the Hedera Jacket from Nancy Marchant's Knitting Brioche: The Essential Guide to the Brioche Stitch and is 5-color brioche knit in Cascade 220 wool. It's roomy and warm (as a jacket should be) and I can't believe it's finished.

I've already started a new project using stash yarn. More about that later.
