So, I cast on a simple-looking bed jacket using Lion Brand Homespun in a lovely colourway called "Painted Desert". After taking care of some basic math problems with the pattern, it was coming along nicely but looked loosey-goosey and I wondered if it would fit like the cape it sort of looked like in the pattern. Now that it's finished, the simple answer is, "No, it does not look like a cape." It's cute, and it will probably look and feel nice, but I would like more of a neck. See:
what mom thinks. She's home and going to outpatient physio weekly, and
supposedly doing exercises daily at home. So, the bed jacket is a tad too late
for its intended purpose, but I'm sure she'll like it, anyway.
