I knitted, and frogged and knitted and frogged . . . and now I am almost finished with the back. My gauge is dead-on with the pattern, but somehow I managed to knit a few extra rows somewhere, causing my back to be 2.5" L-o-n-g-e-r than it was supposed to be!!! I panicked, and the re-knit, and all is fine with the world. I hope to finish the back tonight, and post a photo tomorrow.
The rest of you are doing such a fabulous job---each jacket is so beautiful, I wan one in every color and yarn combination!!
