MOCP Day 24 - Up Close
I made this coat while I stayed at home with my daughter during her first year.
It never ceases to amaze me how well I made the yarn twists and how tidy it looks.
When I was first designing the coat I wanted a detail that would stand out, one that would add fire - almost aggression - to the coat and I thought of something like dragon spine ridges.
It came out as red braid in the middle of back panel and it really looks like dragon spine ridges.
It is a beautiful coat and when I wear it a lot of people ask about it and admire it. But they do so cautiously. Speaking to their friends and commenting to themselves, not asking me about it. When I wear it only people that know me well stop me in the hallway to have a chat.
Seems some things are quite easy to foresee.
