I cast on for this the other day and have barely made above 3 inches of work. My carpal tunnel has been acting up on me again :!!!:
This is the first time I try knitting something with double-stranded yarn and it's taking me a while to get used to the thicker work (not to mention size 10 needles, never had to use 'em before).
For those of you wanting to make this jacket, use stitch markers for the first few rounds until you can clearly read where you have to change the patterns (it goes from moss stitch, to 1x1 rib to reverse stockinette, to moss st, to 3x3 rib, to reverse again, to regular stockinette....it's kinda dizzying to follow at first). It helped me a lot.
