A Pink Lady

My friend AM is wearing her pink A-line jacket. Is she beautiful ? When she looks at HS's (our other friend) a-line jacket, she yells she must have one and hope it can be worn during Chinese New Year (that is Feb 7, 2008) , so this pink one is knitted for her. It is lucky that it can be finished before time. She love it very much.









Pattern : just a simple a-line jacket pattern
Yarn : Nako - Bambu (from Turkey)
Material : 65% Cashmere, 35% Bamboo
Usage 12 balls x 50g(100m)
Needle : 4.2mm (Japanese size)

There is no special difficult in knitting this. This yarn is quite cheap to buy, the original cost is about USD6.15 per ball and after 25% discount off, it only costs USD4.60.
