Well she doesn't have her zipper in yet, but Eileen is still looking good. And as promised, here are some pics to prove it!
I've just got her closed with a shawl pin for now, but it works pretty good.
What I like about Eileen, and what kept it an interesting knit, is that it's patterned all over. Even the sleeves.
As Mom noted, it's a perfect walking the dog jacket for cooler days when it's not cold enough to need a winter coat.
This last pic gives you a better look at the details - cable-like with no actual cables, it's all yos and decreases! It's also a great representation of the colour - a nice warm grey!
If you're thinking of making Eileen for yourself, I highly recommend it. My only caution, is keep an eye on the sleeves - as written, they are VERY wide, and were I to knit them again, I wouldn't increase quite so much. But otherwise, it's perfect!
