And for a friend expecting a girl in February, I am currently taking a break from the fingerless gloves (!) and working on a modified version of the Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmerman. Worked in one piece, with Mirasol 100% hand dyed merino wool in "Hacho". This yarn comes in a multitude of bright combos. Using 3 skeins, as in my previous modified Baby Surprise Jacket, it is coming along. There are seams at the top edges of the arms only. I am making 5 buttonholes down the front every 7 stitches.
