Baby Surprise... done!

My first ever Baby Surprise Jacket. Already I know that I will be making more. This was truly a fun knit. I decided when I finished that I did not want 5 buttons on it, so I did try to cinch up the buttonholes, a bit. But alas, I can still see them. Also, I will do a different increase stitch next time and be a bit more careful when picking up stitches. But all in all, I am pleased with it and I know that Stephen will love it. I am currently working on a matching hat. That should be something I can work on at Noble Knitters tonight without too much concentration... To recap: Yarn used Lorna's Laces Sport in the Devon Colorway and Hiya Hiya 24" Circs Bamboo in a US 3.

Wow, the Harry Potter yarn has been extremely popular and no wonder. Opal is a great sock yarn and fun to knit and watch the patterns evolve.

Also just refreshed at The Yarn Grove - more Nature's Palette fingering weight and of course, Hiya Hiya needles in a multitude of popular sizes... Hope your days include lots of fiber!

Love the baby surprise jacket. I have to get that one and make one or two, just in case.
