Well I need to finish the sewing and I am still debating the closure.  I would really like to put in a zipper but I don't have a machine.  I may try and take it to a seamstress as a few people have told me that doing a zipper by hand is a real chore.

I have to say, although the acrylic is a definite bargain I just didn't enjoy knitting with it.  I don't know if I will do my daughters the same way.  Also, this jacket is way too big for my son so I may put this aside for someone else and do two entirely new ones for the dear children in real wool.

looks good Amy!

mine is officially on hiatus until i get a few other things caught up- a baby blanket i'd like to present while the recipient is still a baby, and a birthday present for my brother (whose birthday was last month!)

good luck with the zipper- let us know how it goes.

Thanks Gerry. I know what you mean. I decided to get real about how many projects I truly have on needles and started pulling them all out of their hiding places. I unearthed SEVEN WIP! I need to get busy!
