Chocolat 2.0

In spite of the heat (really, it's not all that hot by more southern standards!), I'm working away on a new version of the Chocolat jacket--a little more fitted with a shorter body and armholes, selvedge stitches up the fronts, deeper vents, buttonloops added at the end, and (maybe) shaped lapels. Might have to change the name.


The yarn is Cascade 220 in shade 4001. And it's not too early to be auditioning buttons from my collection.


Pretty, eh?
On another topic, I've had a few requests for the Perth Cardi KAL to have an online component. Do let me know via Ravelry or email (emccarten@gmail.com) if you're interested. There's still time to set up a separate KAL blog and connect it to a Ravelry group for the posting of photos, questions, etc.
