I went to Germany for a week and took the Surprise Jacket pattern plus needles and some yarn.
Well, I did spend many, many hours on the overnight coach and I do like the pattern - so much that I ended up buying more yarn and finishing 4 more jackets!
I tried the suggested I-cord edging - my first time ever. On one jacket I did the I-cord edging all the way around the edge, on two others just around the neckline. It certainly makes for a neater finish.
That will be enough for now. Now, what shall be my next project ...??
