The Einstein coat

Well Its finished, and I'm well pleased with how it turned out. It just goes to show that you can break a few rules when it comes to knitting. This as you may have read is the Einstein coat and I used Noro Kureyon. Yes I used a worsted weight yarn and it still turn out right. I was able to get the gauge that the pattern required. It is more like a sweater then a coat which is fine as that was what I was looking for. I didn't worry about color placement. I have knit things in the past from Noro and did match the color changes but this time I thought it would look nicer if it was done randomly. I have worn it a few times and have gotten great feed back on it.

Wow, Melanie! I was looking through your old entries and I found this! Your coat is beautiful! It must have cost a fortune, though!
