Green knitted jacket for my nephew

My sister's twins are about to turn 8 - so I've been furiously knitting, trying to get their pressies finished in time.

This one is done - a zip up jacket with cables and a hood. The yarn is from Bendigo Woolen Mills (12 ply in "Guava") the pattern is from a French pattern booklet bought in Paris last time I was there (I just HAD to say that darlings).

It is fun knitting from French patterns when you don't read French - but not really too hard because they give great schematics :-) maps of the garment with ALL the measurements and that makes it easy - sort of.
