This is a knitting project which took me about four months to finish. I had the yarn like forever but could not make up my mind on the pattern. Finally, I decided to design it myself!
I think it turned out well.
Overall, I am very happy with my ruby!! :)

    This is a fabulous coat! Congratulations on finishing such a time consuming project! I love the patterns you incorporated into the sleeves and around the hemline, just gorgeous! It reminds me of the lovely coats of the 1930’s :)

      Thank you! I possibly could have finished it quicker, if I spent more time knitting every day. But as the project was going on, it became heavy and holding the needles and knitting caused pain in my wrist. so I only knitted 2-3 rows every day!

      That’s still some good dedication! The wrist pain is exactly the reason why I don’t embark on such labour intensive project. You are a trooper!!
