Two Button Jacket

On Friday a friend and I took a little road trip at lunch and went to a LYS that is moving locations and having a sale. I found this pattern and the exact number of skeins of yarn I needed all for 75% off. I sure hope there aren't any surprises because there is no more yarn where this came from.

The yarn is Colourworks in yellows and oranges (shade 996), 100% Pure NZ Wool Hand Painted by Jan Gilray. I little brighter than I normally would pick but I thought it looked fun. They recommended alternating between 2 skeins every 2 rows to keep the color consistent so that's what I'm doing. So far I haven't had too many tangles. I have 10 inches of the back done after working on it this weekend. When I get to 13.5 inches I need to start decreasing for the arms.
