Neglected Since Feb. 05!

My LYS is having a Spring Clearance Sale on yarn - you know what that means - I'll be adding more to my ever growing yarn stash. I'm already a little embarrassed as to how big my stash is but still, I can't pass up a sale on quality yarn! Anyways, what IS embarrassing is as I was trying to sort of organize the stash I already have to make room for more I found this…this has been at this stage since February 2005!!! Which is such a shame because I would totally wear this all the time. It's so close to being finished too. The back panel, 2 front panels, and arms are already knitted up all I have to do is pick up for the collar and button bands and then seam.The pattern is the Hip Hop Coat, designed by Ann Budd, out of the Interweave Knits, Winter 2005 issue. I used Lion Brand, Landscapes instead of Berroco, Hip-Hop to save a little cash. The colorway is nice too, looks much better in person.
I'm making it a priority this weekend to finish before I'm distracted by any new yarn - wish me luck!

Hi Jill,
Love the coat! It is kind of fun finding almost completed projects like that.
Have a great weekend.
