Brown and Browner



















I completed knitting Swing Thing today in spite of having to knit the last 3" of one sleeve twice. Now, I just need to decide how to do the closures (buttons, frog, etc.) and get that done. Does it look familiar? It reminds me of the fancy wool coats we had as little girls. Also reminds me a bit of my most recent knitting project, Ursa, shown below (also dark brown, but different yarn, actually). I finally modeled it for a photo, but I apologize because the light was bad for both of these photos.

I love your brown jacket, it suits you so well. The swing jacket is just adorable too. They are both in one of my favourite colors too.
