Audrey Coat: First Photos

These are rather rough photos, not helped by the grey on grey colour scheme. This is a garment that really needs to be photographed on a human being. It's a bit too heavy to dangle comfortably from a coat hanger. Nevertheless, here it is. I've been living in it since it fell off the needles last week.

The pattern is written up and test knitting is in progress. Thanks, testers. Here's my own test. See?

And, because I want an acid green scarf to go with the coat, here's one in progress,

knitted in the brainless but beautiful "Farrow Rib". Every row K2, p1, worked over a multiple of 3 stitches. Not elastic, but perfect for a mohair scarf. Yarn is Katia's "Ingenua".
