Jacket progress

Whoops, where did February go? I seem to have blinked and missed it. On top of that I was convinced today was Tuesday up until about 12 o'clock...... 

Anyway, hello again. Apparently planning a wedding takes up more time than you'd think, and quickly leads to neglecting your blog. I think I've seen every purple dress currently on sale in the UK and I still haven't been able to find one suitable for my bridesmaids.

I've managed to work on the hooded jacket but haven't got as far as I'd like. Some people in the Ravelry group have already finished or are getting very close.

I've done the first 6 inches and I'm now working on the left front piece. Once you get past the first section it does feel like it's going faster.

Since it is Wednesday I've added this post to Tami's WIP pool, why don't you head over there and take a look at what other crafty things people are currently working on?


  1. Yay - congratulations on the wedding! I know what you mean about all the planning - I've been engaged for about 8 years and when I get into prep mode for it everything else goes out the window.

    Jacket's looking good though - the colours are great together. Hopefully I'll get some more wool this week and get going on mine again - can't wait to get wearing it and showing it off :o)

  2. Good luck finding the perfect dresses! It's amazing how much time it can take to plan a wedding. I think the wedding preparations were one of the most stressful parts of our married life (and we've been married 17 years).

  3. Ooo, good luck! Weddings are stressful. We ended up having a small one and it made us SOOO happy to take the stress (and price tag) off of the whole process.

    The jacket looks awesome so far, so colorful!

  4. Great colors for the jacket. Good luck with the wedding preparations. My husband and I took the easy route and had a small one.

  5. congratulations on the wedding, it does take time but you'll get there!!! gorgeous colours for your jacket, really pretty xx

  6. I know what you mean about February going by too fast! Good luck with the wedding plans!
