Progress Report

I have finished the back, fronts (except for the bottom center triangles) and the collar. Next comes the sleeves! I love love love the fabric these combined yarns make. I ordered some of the same yarns for a jacket for me!
I'm modeling in my pj's with morning hair. Have a good laff on me!

Some Options

Noro Taiyo 40% Cotton, 30% Silk, 15% Nylon, 15% Wool and Plymouth Kudo, 55% Cotton, 40% Rayon, 5% Silk. Since none of this is wool, I will say that this fabric is not as warm, which may or may not be a good thing. It drapes quite nicely, but grows a bit with wearing. I used the same pattern as I do with the wools and the results were much longer in the body, which covers the butt nicely. ha!

 Plymouth Kudo, 55% Cotton, 40% Rayon, 5% Silk and Tupa

by Mirasol Yarn 50% Silk, 50% Merino (that's the green). I think this will have the same growing longer results as the one above, even tho the green is half wool.

 Plymouth Boku 95% Wool, 5% Silk, Creative Focus Superwash

by Nashua Handknits 50% Wool, 50% Merino.  This combo will be soft and washable and have a lot of spring.
 Paint Box by Knit One, Crochet Too, 100% Wool, Sensational by FibraNatura,100% superwash Merino. I used Paint box and another merino in pink for this jacket:

Lion Brand Amazing, 53% Wool, 47% Acrylic, Cascade Pastaza, 50% llama, 50% wool.

 A different colorway of Amazing, and the combo color was dark teal , but anyway, Amazing changes colors nicely and makes the background color look more interesting.
The same Lion Brand Amazing with the same purple Fibranatura Sensational 100% superwash merino.
Vega, multicolored 100% wool with orange Merino Sport 100% merino.

The Vega could be used alone and make a wonderful jacket or made more orange with the inclusion of the Merino Sport.

Is this all confusing enough? Let me know which combo appeals to you,
