Just a couple pictures. Here is the project as it appeared on Monday -- yarn chosen, pattern available, cast on done:
The yarn is my own, in colours Grape Jelly, Rose-A-Lee, and Mocha-Chocolata.
Here it is today:
Another day or two, and the knitting will be done. The Baby Surprise Jacket done with thick yarn -- delightful. The thing I love about instant gratification knitting is that the gratification is so, well, instant.
It's coming out about the right size for a two year old, which is what I expected. I may lengthen the sleeves a bit with a perpendicular garter stitch border; I may not. I don't know who will eventually wear the jacket, but it's a lovely demo piece for my yarn.
