Baby pinwheel jacket

Sorry, I haven't been so well this week. I made a start on the baby pinwheel jacket, and tonight made the openings for the sleeves.
I probably should transfer it from my dps to a circular needle, but I have two repeats on each dp, which makes counting easier.
This is the first time I have made a flat round garment knitting in the round. There is an adult version of the jacket, so it might be a possible project in the future.
I received the latest copy of "The Knitter" at weekend, and there are at least two projects I would like to tackle, the Miss Galloni shrug, and the Savannah bolero. (I knew knitting something circular required practise, and had cast on the pinwheel jacket before I saw "The Knitter")
Progress has been very slow this week, seeing as I have spent more time asleep than awake.
Photos of work to date soon, but the scarf is with it's owner, Becki, already, and she loves it. One of her friends asked where she had bought it from, and the friend had trouble getting her head around the fact that the scarf had been MADE for her....this friend must think clothes grow on trees...ready made somewhere!

  1. Hope you are feeling better. I love knitting in the round, it makes so many things easier & less finishing!
