Now What?

I swatched the Cherry Tree Hill wool boucle (Oceania, in the colorway Quarry Hill). Nice, makes gauge, but I think the fabric is a bit on the limp side for this jacket. Sigh.... What do you think, gang, do I need a fabric more on the sturdy side for this jacket?

And my Handmaiden Ottawa yarn in the color Dragonfly came today! Lovely ... but somehow I thought this was 18 stitches to 4 inches, but it's 22 stitches to 4 inches. I blame the sale sticker. [Sorry, no pic of yarn, I'm wiped out tonight.]

So, now what? Must I set out again along the Grand Yarn Crawl to find a yarn worthy of this pattern? Or shall I sensibly choose Elann's wool/llama aran-weight, the name of which escapes me, in the rich Mulberry color?

Ah, if I only had a brain...

The colors are so pretty in your photo, but the jacket needs a denser yarn, I think. The karabella is knitting up beautifully . . . if only I had a brain . . . see my post above yours?

Really it depends what you want and's pretty! I think you may be able to pull it off, but perhaps more experienced folks will have an actually thoughtful and informed response for you.

But this will look really neat as the circle starts appearing.
