Kudos to Teva Durham

I have been drooling over the Mixed Media pea coat from the IK Fall 2008 issue. This pattern from Teva Durham is on my wish list, but not currently in my budget. A quick price check on the two yarns used, and some calculations give me an estimate of just over $200 for this project. I believe it is worth every penny, but it is going to take some serious planning and yarn dieting on my part to get all of that together for one project. Hopefully someday I'll be talking about this project because I'm casting it on, but today I just want to give a high five to the designer. I opened my NYT to a full page Macy's ad and this is what I saw:

If you click on the image to make it bigger you can really see the stitch work in Macy's jacket. She really was a step ahead (which I guess you have to be if you're going to knit it in time to be stylish). The best part about this is that I don't have to justify $200 worth of yarn to anyone because Macy's is selling that jacket for $330.
