I was a bit surprised by the comments on my last blog post stating that a knitted coat would be too heavy to wear. It’s no heavier than any other wool coat. I live in an area where, during a normal winter, we get our share of ice and snow and below freezing temperatures. We have blizzards from time to time. I have a number of winter coats that are far heavier than 30 skeins of Noro.
I can only assume that the commenters who think a knitted coat is too heavy to wear live in areas where coats are not needed.
Speaking of said coat, I have finished the back.
I have finished the sleeves.
And I am working on the first half of the front.
Work on the coat will, however, come to a screeching halt this weekend because that is when I can start my Camp Loopy Project Three. The coat will be on hold while I work on that. I think I won’t be needing it for a while anyway.
Lucy is resting up for camp!
