  1. Way to go on such a sharp looking jacket. Not only does is use the Yellow KK loom but it uses less yarn than most patterns. Love it!!

  2. Thanks for having something in a larger size…I have a 42 bust…and usually most of the patterns I see, probably wouldn’t fit. I’m trying to work on my other “bag” right now, but I’m going to keep this bookmarked…and try it shortly.

    Thanks for all of your hard work…it looks great!

  3. This is great! Many people out here are plus size- this would be great to wear with either pants, skirt or jeans!! How talented are YOU!! Wendy

  4. Wow ! You really set the bar high ! Your sweater is just what I’ve hoped for.
    Will be ordering soon and will be envious till I get my own made.

    Hugs, applause to the creative,

  5. This is lovely Denise. I went to buy the pattern but the paypal account is my husband’s so I was not sure if the pattern would download to his computer rather than mine!

    He doesn’t have access to a printer and is likely to delete it if it goes to him. Do you know if the pattern would get sent to the computer ordering it or to the computer of the person paying for it?

  6. Just saw this on Ravelry — it is beautiful! Wonderful work! You are so talented.

  7. Appreciating the time and energy you put into your site and detailed information you provide.

    It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed material.
    Wonderful read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  8. Hey terrific blog! Does running a blog similar to this require a massive amount work?
    I’ve no understanding of programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, if you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic nevertheless I simply had to ask. Thank you!

  9. Denise, this is such an appealing piece. I’ve pined after this jacket since I first saw it YEARS ago, and finally casted on this week. I had a little bit of a backlog of “things I want to make”. 🙂

    As I’m working, I’m having a little bit of a hard time having faith that 41 pegs is what I’ll need to create this in my size (I’m a 38G and was working this as an XL). I feel challenged with imagining how this is working up. When we first cast on, what part of the jacket are we creating? I feel as if I’m missing something or misreading the pattern. This doesn’t at all look wide enough to wrap around me. 🙁

    I just saw that I jacked up a row on my garter stitch border and knit 4 where I should have purled 4 about 20 rows ago…and I’m a perfectionist so I’m frogging and starting again. But before I cast on again, I just wonder if I should be working on a bigger loom to accommodate The Girls modestly? I’m working this on the MS loom with the big pegs spaced every other, in Stylecraft’s Life Super Chunky which is 80m/100g weight. I LOOOOOOVE the color of yarn that I found for this (Damson, it’s so ME!), and ordered a couple extra skeins for long sleeves and any adjustments I might need to make with sizing.

    I’m going to put my stitches into the other WIP’s that I have waiting in the wings until I hear back from you, Denise. That way I don’t have to frog again if I find out that I should be using more pegs. TIA for your time and help! 😀

  10. My programmer iis trying to persuade me to move to .net ffrom PHP.
    I have always disliked the idda because of the expenses.
