I’ve been working steadily on my Crayon Box Jacket.It was among those projects that I put away for the summer.When Valerie brought in her completed jacket, I was inspired again.Plus, Chris Bylsma is coming next month and I wanted to wear it in her honor.So, I figured I’d get back on the wagon with my one square a day plan.I worked my one square, and thought, well, while all the yarn is out…
I’d forgotten how much I enjoy playing with the different yarns. The colors continue to thrill me, and I can use as many sequins and sparkly fibers as I want. MaryJo helped select a fabulous rose Astrakan for the borders and gussets, so I went ahead and did the gussets in the car Saturday afternoon.The sleeves are already done, so as oftonight there are only 8 squares remaining to be knit.Maybe when it’s done, I’ll do a knitted skirt to go with this jacket – same rose Astrakan as the trim and very simple styling.
So, if you’ve got a Crayon Box Jacket UFO, get it out!It’s probably much further along than you remember, and you will feel inspired when you look at those fabulous colors and textures!If they’re not jazzing you, bring it all into the shop and we’ll see if we can’t pull some things together that will get your blood racing for your Crayon Box Jacket – and then we can all wear them to Chris Bylsma’s class!
