New project cast on

My seaman's scarf is finished, and now I have moved on to some "celery" coloured Bernat Soy and have started a Tomten Jacket.

This time I'm using 4.5mm (US#7) needles and they feel much more comfortable than the larger ones I was using for the scarf.

I have made one of these little hooded jackets before. They are very simple. Knitted all in garter stitch with Elizabeth Zimmermann's usual practical approach. Minimal sewing. This is good for mindless knitting - maybe I'd better have a second project on the needles for those times when I'm looking for a challenge - perhaps some entrelac. Now that's something I told myself I would learn this winter. I have the yarn already, so perhaps tomorrow will be the day that I start on that!
