The sweater jacket was horrendous, but made out of a combination of beautiful handspun un-died sheep wool with pockets and detailing and accessories in brown tweed. I quickly decided that this yarn was suited for re-use. This is from before the time that I decided to record all these steps in more details, so I don't have a picture of that sweater-jacket.
The brown tweed was tricky because there wasn't really enough of it for anything. I worked a bit on a brown woolen jacket for my husband with tweed pockets etc, but it didn't really work out the way I wanted it. After having made several trials with needles and stitches I decided that the yarn worked the best in "patent" stitches. (not sure this is the right English word for the stitch) and then it suddenly came to me, and I decided to make a bodywarmer with little or no sleeves (not yarn enough) and then knitted in the horizontal direction.
