Jacket progress report

Just finished the first stripe in the second red section; rust is next and in that section I get to split front and back apart to begin the neck opening. That means practically done the first half of the jacket! Yay! Second half will be worked like the first, beginning with cuff and working toward the centre, ending with grafting the last row of centre back stitches from each half together. Can see several ways to simplify if I ever make this pattern again ... cuff and lower sleeve could be worked in the round up to the add-on of stitches for front and back, and using a varigated yarn with long colour changes instead of multiple solid colours would eliminate a lot of weaving in of yarn ends.
