Maybe it's the weather or maybe it's deadlines, but I am not feeling particularly inspired this week. The navy Baby Surprise Jacket is finished and delivered. The Interlocking Balloons Scarf is finished and ready for a photo shoot. The first of the Travelers' Socks is finished. Grumperina even provided me the idea for my next non-knitalong sock pattern. Everything is going well, but nothing seems worth blogging. At least a finished object always makes me happier.
Project: Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Jacket from The Opinionated Knitter.
Yarn: Lion Brand Woolease Worsted Weight in Navy (I know, but it will stand up to baby drool) - 1 3/4 skeins
Needles: US 5 24" Circular needles by Clover
Buttons: Little baseball buttons from JHB International
Notes: Amazing design. Easy and fun and, well, surprising! This will definitely become a staple in my baby knitting repertoire. Oh, and to anyone who may have misunderstood, Mr. Engineer was not the one who had a problem with the pastel sweater for a boy. However, he was the one who wisely understood the indented recipient family. Considering the wild things that Young Man wears, we don't worry about a little pastel in our house.
Finally, this should make me happy. This was what was leftover when I finished off the Interlocking Balloons scarf. Amazing.
