More Sweater Sets


When I finished the Orange Blossom and Bluebell sweater sets for my sister Marilyn, my oldest sister requested I knit three more Baby Surprise Jacket sets for her Grandmother Boxes. I've been working on these sets for several months and finished the last pair of socks yesterday.

  3. Oh, those are just lovely! Are you using Bernat Baby Jacquards yarn? About a million baby hats have been made around here with that yarn--love the self-patterning!

    Your knitting posts are really inspiring to me, thanks!

    1. I tried to response to you by email, but you don't have one listed.

      Yes, the yarn for all three is Bernat Baby Jacquards. My sister selected the colors she wanted.

  8. Too, too cute. I forgot about that pattern even though I put a note in my calendar to buy it. I guess I was really busy when the note came up and then I forgot about it. I'm going to do that tonight. Thanks for sharing. Your blog looks so clean and crisp. I know it hasn't been redone (has it?) I really need to do some work on mine and I keep putting it off! Sigh. Thanks for the memory jogger! B.
