What's On My Needles?

Baby Surprise Jacket
May 2014
As the temperatures began to rise, my knitting slowed to a crawl. At one point all my needles were empty, which is highly unusual for me since I often have up to four or five projects in the works. Craving something to knit, I started a Baby Surprise Jacket to use some wool that has been in my stash too long.

Pattern: Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmerman
Yarn: Lion Brand - Lion Wool - 100% wool (Rose #140 and Winter White #099)
Needles: size 8

  1. Love the red and white combination. I always say I'm going to knit one of these and never do.

  2. They are so cute. Red and white will work great for this jacket. Do you have a baby in mind for it?

  6. BSJ is a fun knit. The last one I made, I used some unwanted sock yarn doubled with an acrylic DK weight. It turned out cute and was a good way to use some sock yarn up.

  7. I can't wait it see it done. I've enjoyed catching up with your blog. I remember many times washing my hair camping with ice cold water...talk about a head freeze :)

  8. I still want to do one of those. Those colors really speak to me... but I have a never-ending Tofutsies baby blanket to finish first.

  9. i treasured some hand knit items I received as gifts when my girls were babies, and they have treasured the hand knit items they have received. So I'm sure some lucky mom will love this little baby jacket.

  10. Great idea to make stripes! That pattern is a surprise. I can remember wondering how it would work the whole time I was working on it, and then sure enough it did.
