So near and yet...

Ta daaaa - well not quite.
I have made the epaulettes (in red) but they need to have a crochet edge, using the natural colour, but there was only 6 inches left of that colour after completing the front I-cords.
So - I've ordered Rachael Hunter says "it won't happen overnight, but it will happen"

More mitts

Somewhere in the process of the never-ending finishing on the Sgt Pepper jacket I got waylaid and started these. I made a few pairs of these mitts last year in an Opal wool and they were popular gifts.
For these I used a merino wool from Schachenmayr that Leah (MagicKnitter on Ravelry) left me. I think they look very smart.
The pattern is free on Ravelry - called 'A Mittful of Jellybeans'

The Home Straight

Someone on Ravelry commented that this jacket had a lot of finishing - and they weren't wrong - but almost there...
Next I make lots of I-cord (something new) and then finish the epaulettes and sew on all the buttons and bingo - I'll post again.
