All Set to Start!
I've been promising myself since October that once the Christmas knitting was finished I would finally get started on a fitted bog jacket for myself in some gorgeous Manos del Uruguay. This will be my first bog jacket and I'm pulling out all the stops: fitted waist, shoulder shaping, short rows in back, striping (including a stunning kettle-dyed Manos colorway) across the shoulders. Nothing like taking a simple design and making it all sorts of complicated, right? I spent yesterday and today doing all my calculations and writing out instructions for myself, and now all I have to do is cast on -- woo-hoo! Wish me luck!
