the first neutral baby jacket is done, eagerly awaiting it's trim, buttons and finishing touches...
I can't say it's my favourite, but I do like it some. I don't think I got the gauge right with the pattern adjustments, as it seems very narrow to me, but we will see.
I have a feeling it would be better in wool, rather than cotton, which is what I'll use for v.2 (which will mean some shopping!)
It certainly provided a nice distraction from the thousands of tiny stitches in the back of the Pea Pod cardigan, though. I must remember to always have an instant gratification project on the go whilst in the midst of an epic! Somehow, psychologically, it kept me going on the monotonous piece, when I knew I could put it down and work on something small and quick.
It's quite sad when you have to mentally "trick" yourself into doing something, that a) you chose to do; b) you like doing; and c) you know you're going to love at the finish line!
It's even more sad that I get a little thrill about discovering new ways to fool myself - like I've managed to get one step ahead of my brain, and I'm oh-so-clever (until brain catches on, which it invariably does)
