Baby Surprise Jacket

I cannot believe I did this jacket in such a short time. It would have been finished sooner if I didn't work on other projects, too.

The jacket does not have buttons, but I will go to Michaels tomorrow and get some.

The yarn is acrylic ww. The pattern is from "The Opinionated Knitter" by Elizabeth Zimmermann. I also have the DVD by her daughter Meg Swenson, and the DVD was a great help, because I got confused a few times. You see, I rarely follow a pattern completely, but this time I did.

My next BSJ will be with one color with some stripes in a darker or lighter shade of the main color. I like the one that is shown on the DVD: Light yellow and cream.

This jacket might be too big for our 2 month old grandson, but I am sure he will grow into it, around spring time.
