Baby Surprise

February 20, 2010

My Icelandic knitting list was doing a KAL for Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Baby Surprise Jacket, and I was always wanting to try making it. So I found some leftover worsted weight yarn in colours that I thought would work: the red is Bartlettyarns from Maine, and the browns are from a local sheep farm. I found that following the pattern as written seems to fit my average weight, tall-for-his-age one year old, although I haven’t sewn buttons on.

He tried it on in Starbucks where I was sewing in the ends and sewing the sleeves together.

Here it is by itself. Now I just have to find some matching buttons from my button stash.
