Painted Lady Coat

What are you most proud of? I am so proud of the fact that I actually painted on wool! The flowers look great. The picture does not do it justice. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you can knit and not sure of how to start a top-down sweater, cardigan or coat, the internet (Ravelry) has a gazillion patterns and then make it your own. Make it long, short even just a cardigan. Knit a square and experiment with paints. You'll be soo proud to say "I made that"

You Can Make This

Carmie made Painted Lady Coat with:

  • I used Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool. 3 skeins knit the whole coat

Q&A with Carmie

MomGrandma asked:
Trust me, you designed your beautiful coat. ; )
Carmie answered:
Thank you so much. I guess you're right. Why is it that some of us refuse to admit that we are very talented. :)
