Baby Surprise Jacket
It's been an eventful week at Fig & Plum. I have a finished object to show you . . .
Pattern: Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmermann [Ravelry]
Yarn: Knitpicks Telemark, Fibre Company Terra
Recipient: Graham Willis
Completed: October 10, 2008
Notes: We were on vacation this week, driving around the Northeast hanging with family and visiting far-flung friends we had not seen in too too long. This BSJ was for Baby Graham, the supercheerful 9-month old son of Clayton and Kendra, some of our oldest friends.
Like the February Baby Sweater, there not much new to say about this time-honored EZ pattern, except that knitting it makes you think EZ could have been an engineer, or possibly a rocket scientist. How on earth did she devise this pattern?
The yarn was leftover from various projects, and the pretty wooden buttons were purchased at Heavenly Socks Yarns in Belfast, Maine.
Since the sweater was still a little damp when we left, and we chose not to subject little Graham to an autumn chill, there's no modeled shot this time. But Graham did graciously model one of his other handknits, the Toasty Topper, so you get the idea:
Over the next few days, I'll be posting more photos from our travels, including some pretty cool farm pictures, over at Flickr.
