I finished my Hex Coat!

Here it is, in all its glory:

Well, most of its glory anyway. It's really hard to photograph the whole thing and not be too far away. I have a newfound respect for Thayer Allyson Gowdy, photographer for Knitting Nature. :)

I'm very happy with how my Hex Coat turned out! You can read a few more details and see one more picture on my blog.

I really liked working on this project - I'm a total fan of the rustic nubbiness of Lite Lopi - but I'm very very happy to be able to move on now!

That's awesome! I love the Hex Coat, but personally don't know if I would have the stamina to knit it. Your's looks wonderful, you did a great job!

Your coat is Gorgeous! I'm impressed by just how large a project that is! I loved the look of that pattern, but would probably only consider making one shorter!

The Hex Coat is one of my favourites in the book but from the start I've told myself there is way I would consider doing so much moss stitch because it would drive me mad, but oh that does look wonderful. I wish I could discover some trick to doing moss sititch without that eternal wrapping backwards and forwards - perhaps this is the time to master Norwegian Purl :) Yours certainly looks lovely enough to swing me a bit further towards making it. I could do a swatch anyway, no harm in that?

That's gorgeous! It's definitely on my list, even more so now that I see someone's finished one. (I've heard some bad things about pattern errors, so I'm glad to see that this one works!) It looks amazing. :)
