You can use the same yarn or other yarn of your choosing. The KAL will work this way: I'll post photos and instructions for Harriet's Jacket as I knit (yet another) one for myself. There'll be lots of photos and details as I go. We'll use the comments section of this blog for questions, answers, remarks, etc. I hope followers will post photos of their work-in-progress to the projects section of Ravelry. Here's some inspiration.

Don't forget to think about buttons--they're so important to the final look! Briar Rose Fibers has some lovely ones.
P.S. For Canadian readers: Briar Rose will ship to Canada, but you will need to write or call to make arrangements; the online form won't accept international orders.
