A jacket for my new nephew. Chunky and warm to keep out the cold Glasgow winds. Started on Bells’ deck on a 40 degree summer day, finished as winter closed in.

    I was going to say I LOVE the buttons, even before I read the part about them being felt. Which just makes the love even greater.

    Howdy there! long time no see! Hope you are well? and back to knitting matters, how did you find the BWM Rustic?

      The Rustic was Ok but a little bit splitty. It’s not particularly soft, and it’s a crepe yarn so the stitch definition in garter stitch was not as crisp as it could be. But my main concern was to use something machine washable, so that’s why I chose it.
