Winter Wonderland Coat

This is the nearly complete, poorly blocked back of the Winter Wonderland Coat from Inspired to Knit by Michele Rose Orne. My daughter in law asked if I would make her a cable coat, so when this sweater was in a trunk show at Amazing Threads, I knew that was one I would like to tackle! She came to the shop, tried it on, and fell in love with it. I must say, some words escaped my mouth when I was doing the lace at the beginning. Because it has pattern on the wrong side in addition to the right side, I kept losing my YO's so my stitch count would be off. After that portion was done, it was clear sailing. Luckily I did the sleeves first so only had a small piece to make the mistakes-the back did go better.
Yarn: Shepherd's Wool (such a soft, wonderful yarn!)
Needles: Size 8

I love the cable pattern! I found a similar coat on Knitty, it's called starsky by Jordana Paige.
