Reflections in a Golden Eye

Now that the baby surprise is done, I can put some energy into the little hooded sweater. Last night, just before bed, I reached the armpits.

The sleeve stitches are on holders (bits of yarn) and the next row will be the one that joins front to back to front. There are no underarm stitches. Maybe that isn't important in a piece this small.

We shall see.

Here's the back. Bad photo.

I wanted to show the raglan increases (done by M1--a lifted increase) and the shaping of the hood (short rows).

There is a very nice edge on the front, formed by "slip the first stitch purlwise with yarn in front, move the yarn to the back, proceed." I have a very nice chain edge going.

I guess the next photo will be on my model (life-size baby doll from my childhood).

Very cute. So how many surprises have you knit over the course of your lifetime of knitting?
Maybe a half-dozen. This one was the fastest.

My confirmation is hopolka (polka of the ho?)
