Weather in the Atlanta area is always a conversation starter. I mean, isn't it everywhere? But here, it's one of those places where you can say "just wait 15 minutes and it'll change". Well, maybe not 15 minutes, but a couple of days, for sure. Last week it was gloomy, rainy, cold. Today it's in the 60's and I had a glorious morning playing tennis. All this is leading up to blogging about my jacket. It's not particularly new, but I never blogged about it before and my current garment is taking up loads of my time, so I wanted to assure myself that I have, indeed, finished something, even if it's in the remote past (well, a couple of months remote, anyway). So here's the jacket:
which I was wearing over a sweater and indoors yesterday, while today I was in my shirtsleeves. I'm kind of proud of the jacket because a) I like the fabric, which hearkens back to my New Mexico roots; and b) I drafted it myself. And, I forgot, c) it's the perfect weight to wear over a sweater indoors.
I also like how I finished the sleeves, very typical of how I often sew: I didn't finish them at all. So there.
