Full circle...

It's been a great week off work, and I still have one more.
We went fishing... as you can see Mr. D is always happy when he's in his boat.
We had a perfect dog. She loves watching the water splash by...and she got a swim when we went back to shore.
This baby had to go back until bass season opens at the end of the month. Too bad!!!!This little beauty was keeping a close eye on us.
And I did get a little knitting done....this is the baby blanket I've been working on, and I'll tell you about that one another day!

I finished this one yesterday morning, and it feels like I've come full circle. I made this hooded jacket for my daughter when she was born, it was my very first knitting project. And now that I've made several over the past 30 years, I was thinking it was time to re-vamp the pattern. I like the top down method so much that I took lots of notes and I'm going to try doing it backwards with alot less sewing.Pattern: Jacket with Hood--Patons Beehive for Baby #150

Yarn: Sirdar Snuggly DK 3--50g, 1-50g ball for contrast.

Needles: 3.75mm

Modifications: I took the idea from the Tulip sweater and did a seed stitch border and an I-cord bind off, and crocheted ties.

Now I'm off to start something new.

Rhonda it looks as though you are enjoying your holidays. The baby hooded jacket is beautiful. I cannot wait to see the blanket either.
