Warped strip of garter-stitch fabric
The problem with the Baby Surprise Jacket is that it looks like nothing until it is completed. At the moment is is a warped strip of garter-stitch fabric.
I'm using some lovely soft Cleckheaton Merino Supremo yarn.
I got a bit confused at 'Make 1 using a Backward Cast-On Loop method' but found an excellent instructional video here.
I keep getting distracted. I've joined the Yahoo Illusion Knitting group. I finally gave the pirate illusion scarf to my brother and for the first time I think I may have even impressed him. I want to do more illusion knitting but I'm determined not to have 20 projects on the go at one time again.
And I've found a new pattern for an Irish Hiking Scarf that is completely reversible which I really want to try.
On top of this I really want to make another jumper for a three-year-old friend.
And, oh yes, I still have another lollipop sock to go.
