The Einstein Coat, finally...

I know I'm a little slow catching up on things. Sally Melville introduced us to the Einstein Coat in her book, "The Knit Stitch" in 2002. So, I've been busy! Anywho, one of my customers walked in wearing a gorgeous number done up in a tweedy gray Lopi and she looked so good, it's all I can think about. I found a "gently used" copy of Sally's book at my favorite local bookstore - Front Porch Books - yesterday and took that as a sign to begin Sweater #16. I want mine done up in a dark red Lopi. It takes 11 skeins of the regular weight Lopi and at $6.50/skein that's some affordable coat.
