Baby Surprise Jacket

It's been an eventful week at Fig & Plum. I have a finished object to show you . . .

Baby Surprise Jacket

Pattern: Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmermann [Ravelry]
Yarn: Knitpicks Telemark, Fibre Company Terra
Needles: 5?
Recipient: Graham Willis
Started: ??
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.

BSJ Buttons

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.

I agree....EZ most definitely has that engineering mind. The BSJ is a fun knit. I love the little helmet hat your son is wearing. He just looks like a little man!

A lot of specialists say that loan help people to live their own way, because they are able to feel free to buy necessary stuff. Moreover, a lot of banks present short term loan for different classes of people.
