No longer bogged down

I love my Bog Jacket!  It is long enough to go past my butt, is as warm as a blanket, and looks good, too.

Pattern:  Bog Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmermann (in Knitting Around)
Yarn:  Cascade 220 in black, red, and gray
Needles:  US7 for most, US6 for applied i-cord
Modifications:  None of my own, but I selected most of the options recommended in the pattern

I still want to do something additional with the sleeves, like add a cuff.  They come just past my elbows, are rather kimono-like, and appear to bell although technically they are not bell shaped. But for now, I am going to consider this project done and enjoy the warmth.
