Connecticut Avenue Redeux

I am very happy with the way the original Connecticut Avenue Jacket turned out, but after going over my notes, I saw there are some areas that need refining. So I am making another one using a different bulky yarn. This one is made using Knit Pick's Quarry in Ubatuba.

One trick that I'm using this time is making both the left and right front at the same time using two skeins of yarn. It seems to go faster and I can be sure that they are working up the same by doing my increases/decreases for the row at the same time on both pieces. I'm going to do the same thing when I work the sleeves.

I'll take better pictures also. Make sure I wear a bra this time and model someplace other than my bathroom.
