Tree Jacket Progress

So maybe taking on the task of posting everyday was a bit much. I think I'll aim for three times a week, and then when I have more time posting everyday.

Anyway...above is the progress I've made on my tree jacket. I'm knitting it in Cascade Pastaza, which is a wool/llama blend. Its actually pretty soft given the combination. I was originally making the 40-43" size, but after trying it on realized it was way too big. So I ripped back a size. Its still a little big, but considering I'll be wearing something underneath it I thought it would be a good idea to make it a little big. I'm happy with the way its coming out so far.

I guess that's about it for my knitting progress. I've made my 2008 knitting list which I'll be adding to my sidebar and to Ravelry. I'll cross them off as I get them done. I also went vegetarian beginning January 1st. I feel much better and have been without meat for exactly 2 weeks. I think I'm going to keep a count on my sidebar too. Anywhoo...I'm going to head off to bed.

Ooooh! I hope you continue with this piece! I love the diagonal parts, especially the collar!
