I finished the Baby Surprise Jacket! (well, okay, it needs its buttons, but otherwise it's done). I happened to have in my stash a big ol' hank of sportweight yarn in the very same colorway as the sock yarn I was using to knit this sweater. Yes, it's weird. No, I"m not sure how it happened. But I'm grateful -- because it allowed me to bind off...
I love that it goes from this:
With only two wee shoulder seams!
And... today in the mail, I got these
Beads! Beads for Irtfa'a! (okay, and beads for something else, but that's not relevant to today's post. I believe in combining for reduced shipping whenever possible).
Repeat two of the Quill and Feather pattern here I come. (Oh Divine Though Blogless Elizabeth? we can start knitting again now).
