Marching on

 And here we have Rebel Jacket No.2 - also referred to as my Sgt Pepper Jacket.
 The first one I made was in red, cream and grey - so this is a little more subdued.
The 3 darker colours are from the Mill Shop in Milton. They are a 50/50 alpaca/merino mix.
And the lighter mustard highlight colour is from Skeinz - a blend of various yarns.
All were an economical  buy which was a good bonus.
Also the buttons were sourced from our local Shop on Carroll; an Op Shop which recycles buttons from old clothing among other things. Also making it more economical.
The jacket is supposed to be made from a worsted/aran weight yarn and I used DK and made a size smaller - fortunately it seems to have worked out.
