Circle Jacket... Hmmm...

Here's a little circle jacket I finished a while back. After having made this, I've decided that people are basically rectangular in nature, and trying to put a circle on a rectangle is a lot like putting a square peg in a round hole. The jacket is for dd#2, and it is too big presently, which makes perfect sense since I buy her clothes a size up as well, and roll and hem away. She's a fast grower, and I have a pet peeve about kids in clothes that are too tight. I did enjoy the hours of stockinette in the round. It came in very handy at dad's bedside.
Specs: Berroco Polkadot
Yarn: Moda Dea Cartwheel -18 skeins
Needles: Addi Turbo #7s, Clover dpns #7s
Buttons: Grandma's vintage, in my coveted stash

WhatIfKnits is hosting a Blogiversary Raffle. Make a donation to one of the animal charities on her site and she will put you in for a chance to win some great prizes which I'm sure have everything to do with yarn and such. Even a small ($2) donation gets you in the running, which is good, since my kids are tapping my funds lately.

Great sweater, great color! I was just talking about one similar - the pinwheel sweater- last night at Knitting group. BTW, thanks for visiting my blog. I feel better about SOTsII now!
