I finally found some great buttons for the Baby Surprise Jacket I finished knitting a little while back, so now I can say it is officially done.
Don't they look just like little M&Ms?
Pattern: Elizabeth Zimmermann's Baby Surprise Jacket
Yarn: a little over 3 balls Hobby Kids
Buttons: From a nice yarn shop we visited in Bethesda, Knit and Stitch
Modifications: As you can tell, my buttonholes aren't even. Oh well! I think they look fine where they are. I made this on slightly larger yarn and needles, so it's a bit bigger than an ordinary BSJ. Finally, like many people have been doing these days, I did one round of single crochet around the neckline to neaten it up. Otherwise, this is very much the same friendly BSJ that we know and love!
I can't wait to find a small person for this.
In other news, I should be receiving my Ravelry invite this week! I have been watching the list with increasing anticipation and as of right now I'm 43rd in line. I hope it's all what it's cracked up to be, because there are over 15,000 people in line behind me!
I also hope to be able to post some more good news by the end of the week. Job-type news. Stay tuned.
