Knitted Jackets

If I could knit 24 hours a day, there would never be enough time to make all the beautiful things on my list. I just treated myself to a new book — “Knitted Jackets: 20 Designs from Classic to Contemporary” by Cheryl Oberle. (The cover design is called the Bloomsbury Jacket.)

Even though we live in a warm weather area, there are still a few months in the year when we can wear a jacket comfortably and not look like goobers. There are some gorgeous patterns to choose from in this book. Here are my four faves, starting with the Box Top. Just look at the texture!

The Three Sisters is not only comfortable and classy looking, but especially fitting since I have two amazing sisters.

Dakota on the Side just looks so cozy and has a little bit of southwestern flair.

I love a cute shrug and this ivory Leaves jacket has that feel. The lacy leaf pattern is gorgeous!

I already have so many things going on the needles right now, it will probably be next year before I can even think of starting one of these. But I can dream …

  1. Nice, nice jackets. You could knit any one of them and look fabulous! Yes, I have a long list of projects lined up as well. But it’s all good!

  2. The design on “Three Sisters” looks like Celtic knotwork. You have good taste.

  3. See…..we all love Celtic knotwork. I really have to dig deeper into our family tree and find our Scottish connection. I’m sure it exists! I bet it’s on Dad’s side (wink, wink).
