Adult Surprise Jacket of Many Purples

Last winter I was part of a Adult Surprise Jacket class at my LYS, Mendocino Yarn Shop. Very Fun! I didn't really want to buy yarn so I went through my stash and went with purple. I used Cascade 220 in four shades of purple and light purple in alpaca. The buttons are sterling sliver with a Celtic design. I liked the square shape of the buttons. I finished the jacket in the spring. Today I delivered it to the Mendocino County Fair for judging. We shall see what the judge thinks. I am waiting for cold weather so I can wear it!


  • Very pretty! I hope you win a blue ribbon.
