Yesterday I took a day trip to Picton. As usual, I visited the Rose Haven Farm Store, dropped off a few copies of recent patterns for the store, and chatted with Linda, the owner. My car was parked more or less in front of City Revival, so I casually wandered in to have a look. City Revival is something of a mecca in this part of the world, far away from downtown Toronto and New York. I've been there before, but never found anything that called to me. Yesterday was different. I scored!
and the magnificent buttons, all 12 of them!
When I donned the coat to walk to the market this morning, Bill, who rarely notices anything not economics-related, said, "Gee, you look almost---well, not tall, but---not short". Truly, a ringing endorsement of what I hope will be my coat for the next 18 years.
Now, what would you knit to accessorize with this classic piece?
