Not Martha

H&M coat

This is my new H&M coat, which I like a lot. It’s a spring weight coat, fully lined in adorable polka dots, see the adorable? It’s perfect for a number of reasons, it’s cotton (I find wool itchy), the collar is cute but not too cute, it’s fitted but not too much, it hangs to the knees but it’s not too full and swingy, it’s not too trenchy, it’s not too military or vintage-y. And the pockets, which aren’t too shallow, are also lined in the polka dots. I think it was around $70. And it comes in red.

The scarf is my latest knitting accomplishment, it only took me four months to complete, ha ha. It’s the Lace Ribbon Scarf pattern from Knitty done with Comfort DK yarn, which is surprisingly excellent. And I’m thrilled that Comfort is now offered in a chunky weight as well.

    Your scarf looks lovely! There is something about that pattern that makes it hang so nice. Sadly I seem to spend more time looking at photos of the Lace Ribbon Scarf than actually knitting on my own :)

    I was surprised by the quality of the Comfort Sock yarn, so I will have to check out the rest of the line!

    Is your scarf done in seedling or sprig?

    I think have this coat too! I love the lines of it and have worn it for two years. It always looks trim and nice!

    what a pretty scarf

    funny – cuz I just realized I need a knit scarf in that green color, I have lots of green, but not a knit scarf

    also – i am wondering if I want to wear the brownish spring weight coat that goes best with my outfit, or go ahead and wear my super warm winter coat…
    warm always wins these days

    Lovely scarf… I love, love, love the colours the chunky weight yarn comes in, but wish it were a natural fibre yarn. Does anyone know of a natural fibre chunky yarn that comes in similar colours?

    I saw that coat at H&M here too and immediately loved it!
