No more blahs

Those knitting blahs did not last long.  In fact, I seem to be suffering more from startitis.  I told myself I would not start the Every Way Wrap until the Bog Jacket was finished, but, well, the yarn arrived yesterday.  Just a little swatch, I told myself...

... and the next thing I knew, the initial ribbing was done.

I'll work on the Bog Jacket tomorrow.

The Willow Cowl is done, except for blocking.

Even without the extra optional lace pattern repeat, I almost ran out of yarn.  It seems like a lot of cowl for my short, thick neck, but I do like the colors.

The latest BSJ has been neglected, but now it is the portable project so it should get some attention.

I'm using a Fibonacci series for row counts - 1,1,2,3,5,8.

I checked my spreadsheet against the stitch counts supplied by the A-B-C Surprise Jacket pattern.  They match, but there is some discrepancy where side stitches are picked up.  I get kind of confused there, so hopefully all will make sense now that I have the "real" instructions.

No more blahs, indeed! Looks like you're off to a good start, no matter what the bog jacket may think. (If a piece of knitwear could think, that is.)
