So, I’ve been working on this awhile….and it’s done, except it doesn’t have buttons, and I’m too broke to buy any, so when I send it to my mom (it’s for her co-worker’s daughter, who’s expecting a baby in March), she can add buttons. She has a bunch…..and I don’t.
(this picture, for unknown reasons, is kind of blurry).
Pattern: Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmermann
Yarn: Cascade Heritage Handpaints
Needles: US 5 24″ circular
Changes: The pattern specifies 2 gauges….6 sts per inch for the smaller (newborn) size and 5 sts per inch for the larger size…I got about 5.5 sts per inch in garter stitch.
I loved knitting with this yarn!
Here’s a picture with more accurate color…
This was a fun knit! Now I’m working on a hat to match.
