The extra Noro found it’s way to my mailbox so I am almost done with my Adult Surprise Jacket (again). This time the sleeves are too narrow rather than too loose. But rather than start over (again) I decided that a little modification could save the sweater. A few short rows later and I have what I like to call speed stripes. But now the neckline is a little more bodice like so I’m leaving it to marinate for a bit while I figure out how I feel about it.
And of course I can’t be almost done a few projects without at least considering my next project. Well ‘considering’ turned into casting on for a Sideways Pullover from the Winter ’04 Interweave Knits. I’m adapting for smaller gauge and a closer fit than shown in the picture. I forgot how fabulously fun and mindless brioche stitch was.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to get back to procrastinating the laundry a little longer.
