I really want to give the Surprise Jacket a try too but really don't have any babies to make for either.
Well, I did go out and buy some Patons SWS. It's on sale at Michael's this week BTW. Instead of making a sweater I cast on a brain protector using info from Knitting Workshop mostly. I'm doing color work for the first time too, a very basic design.
#9 needles - knit picks circs modified magic loop (not sure there is such a thing but that's what I'm calling it.)
Raisin - for the main color
Geranium - for the first color bar and the 3rd color bar in progress.
Berry - for the 2nd color bar
I hope it fits. I don't think it will be too small but I am a bit worried it will be too big or on the loose side.
I eat the feel of this yarn as I knit but it is a bit finicky. It's easy to snag an split. So it's slowish going.
Thanks for looking.
