But it is on THE LIST! And now, it is on the needles. I even swatched, and got gauge exactly! So I'm very excited! Hopefully, it will move along quickly - Kate may even be able to wear it a little this summer, and take it with her to Florida.

Last night I cast on Gemini for Kate. She has this beautiful suit jacket, black with tiny embroidered roses all over it. NOTHING goes with it. At least not anything I have been able to find. It actually doesn't look bad with a black shirt underneath it, but that is a whole lotta black. I haven't been able to find a shirt the right shade of pink, let alone one that is: short/no sleeves (she gets hot); is fitted (because the jacket is fitted); is simple, with no or few embellishments (because the jacket has a lot going on); isn't too low-cut (because people don't take you seriously in speech competitions if you are all about the cleavage); and isn't too long/short/tight/loose/etc. So just about the time I decided to make one, Gemini came along. I found the yarn, bought the needles......and promptly put it aside.
