Kavi's Baby Surprise Jacket

Remember this? Well it's finished!!

I blocked it and sewed on the buttons last night instead of going to the circus. We had plans to go to Ringling Bros at Madison Square Garden, but I made migas and black beans instead. Then I finished this :) So happy. This is the Elizabeth Zimmerman Baby Surprise Jacket pattern, and it really is a big surprise. The whole time that I was knitting this I had no idea how it would ever turn into a jacket. I was confounded.

It is just blind trust with this one.

It was 100% worth it and I hope to make very many of these. The only seam in this sweater is along the top of the sweater sleeves along the back. In the future, I will sew both seams from the neck-hole out, as I found that otherwise, it causes the sleeves to encroach on the neck space.

Perhaps now it is finally time for my first man sweater...

  1. That's a beautiful jacket. I'm still working on my jacket as well... We shall see how it turns out.

    I still have to stitch together the hippo as well. Gosh so much to do, so little time.
