Double-knitted jacked in progress

Sweet and slow: I like the way this jacket is turning out, but it does take a lot of time since double knitting (logically) involves twice as many stitches. This technique is just as addictive as brioche knitting and I have quite a few ideas I want to try. But when? Retiring at 40 is a tempting idea but not really realistic...

I couldn't resist adding an A for Asplund (or Armpit) before dividing the jacket into a back and two front sections. Suddenly knitting only one of the fronts is so much quicker I find myself making mistakes quite often as I mix up rows (knitting the same row again).

WAUW... Det ser smukt ud. Du er da kommet langt. Og så kan jeg godt lide dit A, et lille "smil", under armen. De små sjove detaljer der gør værket unikt. Jeg sneg også initialer og årstal med på bagsiden af kanten på mit Æblesjal.
Fortsat god arbejdslyst.
Og hold fokus!!!

I can identify with your experience of double knitting and brioche knitting.

You are amazing! I can only look on in wide-eyed admiration. I love the A for Asplund or Armpit!

You know how much I love the colour green! Double knitting is time consuming but it is very much worth it...
