Baby Surprise Jacket in progress

I know, I know, I said I wanted to finish the log cabin. The lure of the yarn and this pattern was impossible to resist. But also, I’m taking a two-and-a-half-hour train trip with a toddler this weekend, and the log cabin would be a little too big to take along comfortably or defend successfully against toddler attack.

The yarn is drier and less elastic than most woollen yarn I’ve used before. It feels almost like cotton on the needles, which surprised me. The resulting fabric is very soft, though.
