FO - Wildfell coat

It is finally finished - Wildfell, in yarn Noro Kochoran, a wonderful angora blend, soft and very very hot. It is a Jane Ellison pattern for Noro. I actually had to strip to not melt away when taking the picture. It is hot hear. And after the rainfalls drenched our spot on earth, it is now steamy like Redang. Sigh... the three week vacation felt way too short. We have being painting all day today. Not only kitchen, but also started on the happy carpented "lace" for the balcony. In linnenseed oil. It takes forever. Sad news is that both hubby and me have a sore back. He pulled some muscles, and I am just sore after hanging over the paint. This would have been a great sailing weekend. But no way we could handle the jerks of the boat in our condition. So it is working home and sweat it out. I guess dear Wildfell will be perfect for winter. I added pockets and buttons, and the little red edges to highlight the beige-brown. It is unblocked. Anyhow this concludes my 12 sweater this year. Now it is back to finish some real old sweater UFO's. The paper-yarn freeform top for example. That would be good wearing right now. So one week work. And I am already exhausted. How will this go?
And yes Liz, you may link to my blog - Anyone can! I just think it is great I can amuze anyone! Thank you dear Milly and Hila and all of you wonderful people who comment. At least I know I have some readers except dear mother in law ... Hi to you too! I heard it rained. Hope you are ok!

Believe you have more than a few readers... just that some of us seldom comment ;) I've been a regular visitor for years now.... link to you now!

I like what you do and that you have a certain faiblesse for special qualities.
