In a seemingly rare burst of sunshine earlier this week, Kitty and I nipped outside to take some photos of my most recently finished knit before our ever so exciting trip to the post office to send it off to Baby C who arrived on Good Friday
“When you’ve played the chasing game for a long long time and you think you might like a snack or some milk, sit down and do your bestest smile. You know, the one that makes the big boys and girls say ‘aaa’ and make you scrambly eggs on toast for breakfast. That’s my favourite thing Bear, if you get some I will eat them for you.”
“See, this is my bestest smile. Mama, banana now?”
The knit in question was of course an Elizabeth Zimmerman Baby Surprise Jacket, top of my list of useful and cute baby knits both as a knitter and a Mama.
As Baby C arrived a month or so early at a slightly wee weight of 6lb something, I’m sure that a month or so won’t make a difference in the fit; Kitty was wearing hers until she was about 4 months I think, and she had a couple of pounds on him from the start.
I just hope he likes ladybirds.
Pattern:Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmerman
Yarn: Two and a smidge balls of Adrifil Knitcol (a DK weight superwash sock yarn) in colour 053
Time to make: a month. I can knit one in a weekend, but the world has been a busy place.
Would I make it again: This was my 11th. Do I need to answer this one!
