KAL progress report

On Saturday I cast on for my Baby Surprise Jacket with some random needles I like (Addi lace circulars in I think 4mm size) and got 5 stitches to an inch - that should be about the right size for the new neighbour-baby this coming winter, I hope.

Then I started knitting, remembering only at row 4 that I'm using two skeins of hand-dyed yarn and should be alternating them, so I decided I would just do that from there on rather than ripping back, whew. And both cakes fit perfectly in my little tinyhappy bag with room left over for the actual project, yay!

After that I got all the way to here:

before I got stuck. This is where the line-by-line instructions end, and an increase is introduced, but I wasn't sure whether it was meant to come here (row 9) or later (row 10? row 11?)

Thankfully this is a knitalong and arielzoe came to my rescue: row 11.

I'm not sure when I'll get back to this project, having another emergency/urgent one on the needles since the weekend, but it already looks weird enough for me to be anxious to find out what's next. Stay tuned!
