I'm very excited to make this jacket; I think my mom will really love it. I'm going to make it for her as a surprise gift--maybe Mother's Day (though it will probably count for her birthday, too). If I like it, I think I'll make one for myself.
I only purchased enough yarn to make one, however, to keep my costs down. I went with Knit Picks' Wool of the Andes in Fern. I bought a color card for the yarn, and I'm glad I did--I think the actual color of Fern is nicer than it appears online.
If Hootsister joins the KAL as well, I know there will be at least one other person using this yarn in Fern! Don't mix us up :)
