Uptown Coat

I've been staring at this stash of Paton's Classic Wool for a long time. They are my accumulated purchases from Michael's when Classic Wool was on sale. They cuddle in this little shelf by my bed side; they are the first things I see in the morning when I get up, and last things I see at night before lights out. There are eleven balls of blue, three balls each of purple (behind the wires if you can see the color) and blue/red/purple variegated; and one ball each of cardinal red and blue turquoise. Some days they want to be a warm coat, with the blue as main color, purple and variegated as contrast, red and turquoise as small highlights. This coat is from Knitters Fall 99, called Southwest Goes Uptown, by Lily Chin. I like the feminine shape, most other coat are more like square sacks.

Can 1 woman have too much yarn?

Not that I know one thing about fashion of any sense - but I think the coat would be pretty with the colors you have. However, that's a pretty long one in the picture. I don't think you should go too much below the knee (that's not flattering for anyone).

Very nice coat. Like you said long and sleek. . .and I love the Tam too, but then I love hats. Isn't it wonderful to finally decide and just get on with it?
