Baby Knits- One Down....

I've got several babies to knit for all arriving late this summer. I had never made the famous Baby Surprise Jacket, so this was my chance. This is yarn I dyed myself last year and have never gotten around to making socks from it. I love how it worked for this. Every time I hit an orange spot it made me smile.


I started before anyone knew the gender thinking it could go either way, but now that it's finished, I'm leaning toward girl with some flowery buttons.
That was confirmed when the smallest member of the household offered to model it this morning. He's only about 20 months and 15 lbs too big.


Swatching now for the next sweater. It's Oliver's turn next!

What a cute sweater, especially on your model. He's got the fashion sense of someone at least twice his age with the camo pants and all.

I love your yarn - knits up great in this design!

And your boy - he's fantastic, as always. Such a character!

You dyed that? How fun! It looks fantastic in garter stitch. Reminds me of stained glass.

Oliver is going to be a lucky little guy! What size pants is your young chat wearing now? 2T ? 3T? We're coming out to visit in late june/early July!!

Super cute! I think it looks cute on him as a little vest top! Will be up hopefully late next week in time for TRAC tour. Having a glitch though of when a shipment from Africa is arriving here in Chapel Hill and whether or not I will be here to receive it.
