kimono jacket

the kwanzaa present for my mom is done! it only took 2 weeks to complete...apparently my gauge was off cuz the jacket ended up being a little short...i added the bottom band of the contrast color to the jacket to add some length...i'm really bad at picking up stitches tho and so there's a little buckling on the left hand side of the jacket...i did some blocking, but it's still a little short...so we'll see how my mom likes it and i'll make changes as needed i guess!

This is great! I really like new interpretations of garter stitch, plus the colors are luscious!
