Lois was our November First Friday project. As much as I love Kim Hargreaves' work, I am embarrassed to admit that this is the first of her designs I have ever actually knit. I found this pattern to be very well written. It is clear, complete, and accurate, and I am absolutely thrilled with the outcome. Kim is a fan of Rowan yarns, and she knows how to design each one to its best advantage. Lois is worked in Drift, a super chunky yarn is gloriously quick to knit, but can sometimes turn out garments that are challenging to wear well. Kim's knowledge and expertise has given us a garment that looks great at this gauge and flatters a wide variety of bodies.
I knit the middle size which indicated it was to fit a 36" bust, which is my bust measurement exactly. You can see how it hangs on me here.
At the Leonardtown shop Friday and Saturday, we had a variety of women try on the coat, and you can see that it looks nice on each of them. It's interesting that Lois looks great as part of a dressy outfit
as well as with the sporty jeans Jenny is wearing
These two beautiful ladies, Carol and Denise came by Saturday afternoon from the Uniquities knitting retreat over on Solomon's Island. See how nice the jacket looks from the front - but even more important,
look how smart it looks from the back - see how those vertical lines give to enhance both ladies' graceful hourglass shape! Very, very nice - and thank you both for being such good sports!
