Isn't it adorable? Magical, too. This is my first in-the-round raglan and I was positively giddy at the joining of sleeves to body. I'll definitely make more of these -- not with stripes, or at least not as many, or better handling of the ends! The striping was inspired by a Fibonacci sequence, with interpretive artistic license and laziness applied.
Here's the newest Baby Surprise Jacket. I'm using the handspun I purchased last month at Wool Farm Crafts in Grantsburg, along with some red Lamb's Pride Worsted. Obviously, the Lamb's Pride was a middle-of-the-road addition, and I intend to crochet a red edge around each cuff to pull it all together. I let it simmer last night and here's the stew: I think I'm going to rip and re-do the last bit -- the button holes are off, for one thing, and I thought I'd like the effect from reversing the join for the stripes, but I really don't.
I'm knitting out tonight -- both the Master's Group at Iris and the coffee shop Knitting Circle. I have a new and improved Master's Swatch #1 for Deb to give the eagle-eye. ; ) That one joins #3; next up is #2.
