This is my first Baby Surprise Jacket, which I hope to finish in the next few days (wouldn't take that long if I didn't have to work, but there you go). The yarn is some hand-dyed I bought at Rhinebeck two years ago - a wool/mohair blend, if I remember correctly. The solid and the multi were two skeins dyed to be complementary, and I really love the way they're knitting up.
Once this is finished, I'll be sending it off to my cousin, who is stationed in Afghanistan at a base Northeast of Kabul. Aid agencies don't make it into these more remote areas as often, so the need is greater. While I won't be able to send much, I figure that every little bit will help.
