So here is the sweater coat. I designed the entire thing from bottom to top. Heh. The yarn...as I said is cheap and started pilling the first day I wore it, but the design is really fetching I think. I don't think I'll write it all out here but I'll gladly share the pattern if you want to request it. The color is nutmeg in DK weight merino. It is long. It hits me a several inches below the waist. I did the sleeves extra long so they could be folded upward quite a bit. I loved how the cabling on the back turned out.
Everyone is giving my husband and I a hard time about naming our new boy Ezekiel "Zeke" for short. I tried to explain to the family that their lack of approval in this matter really only eggs us on. He he.
