A note on decreasing

I'm just pointing this out because I had to think about it.
To keep your marked stitch constant, knit to the stitch before the marked stitch. Slip that stitch, then knit the marked stitch and the one after it together, and pass the slipped stitch over. Transfer the stitch marker to the new stitch that's on the needle (the one that you just passed the ss over).

This is an awesome suggestion and works! I love it! Also, you definitely have a good grasp of the pattern. I know where to go to with questions :).

I just finished up my own Surprise Jacket in January....and I'm wearing it right now. It's all still pretty fresh in my mind ;)
