A long way from the line...

...is the Kimono Coat which did not make it anywhere close to a finishing line in the Ravelympics.

That said, I am plugging away diligently and I am happy with progress so far. Yet, as you may be able to see from the fact that the yarn is resting on some kitchen scales in this photo? I am a bit worried that I may not have enough yarn to make it to any sort of finishing line at all.

I hope I do, as my ideas to extend the life of this yarn did not quite work out. So there may be some shallow breathing as I inch my way slowly across this garment!


P.s. there are still no photos of my phyllo as I hope that I have found it a very deserving home. It is headed to a good friend who I managed to persuade to try it on this evening. So I am going to sew in its ends, do some stablising crochet around its neck and then? I will see if I can persuade her to pose in it for me either next weekend or the weekend after that - watch this space!

I'm knitting a February Lady Sweater and I have exactly the same problem! Grrr... so irritating, and 100% my own fault, which is worse - noone to blame it on!

Good luck with yours. I hope it will stretch. :)

Hopefully it will work out and you will have enough. You looked like you had a fair amount left still.
