Huge needles + chunky wool = finished jacket!

Brand new jacket!

 

This is my type of knitting!  It’s the Kim Hargreaves Nat jacket which is knitted in Rowan Big Wool on 10mm needles.  Because you use such big needles and a very chunky yarn, it knits up really quickly.  I bought the wool on 14 September and finished sewing up the jacket on Sunday – after it had lain over the back of my chair for a week waiting for the second sleeve to be sewn in.  By my calculations that’s just three and a half weeks to knit – I normally take about six months to knit anything.

In addition, it’s really warm and the wool is beautifully soft against my skin.

Just the jacket I kneed for our forthcoming move to windy Lincolnshire.

P.S. Don’t ask – I don’t know!  Husband has already started the new job but it depends on when they can find us suitable accommodation.
