a little progress

well, making a little progress. at left are my pockets/gauge swatches, and i have about 6 inches of actual jacket knitted. it doesn't look like much so far- just a wide, black garter stitch ribbon (or a sideways scarf!)
i'm using peaches and creme double worsted at 3.5 stitches to the inch.
i realized about 10 rows after a short row that one of my wraps looks lousy and i made the executive decision not to go back. can you duplicate stitch in garter? i don't think it's very noticable- or is that just wishful thinking?

okay, just a guess, based on what I have done with Classic Elite Weekend Cotton, but with a cotton yarn that bulky I bet you will have a hard time making the wraps look inconspicuous. The yarn is just so firm and thick that that stuff show up more. I'm not sure about stitching over it, but there's only one way to find out.
