I had sort of decided that I wanted to give Lily-Rose the smock jacket when we see her next weekend. Of course, this means that the jacket needs to be finished...the right front cable panel is still to be knitted and then it'll need to be embroidered, blocked, sewn up, buttons and everything. By Friday. It's now Monday night. We'll see... if I can manage to not rush and make mistakes but just keep steadily working at it, there is a chance.
It's a nice pattern to work certainly, there are things of interest in every piece and the pattern seems fine so far - just one tiny error that would be really obvious to anyone as it's in the cabling pattern where you create panels of stitches up the work.
The cuffs are pretty, repeating the smock effect from the back.
