So I knit a Baby Surprise Jacket. Uh, forgot to mention that, surprise? Really it took all of four days, most of which were not spent knitting, so it could have gone much quicker.
I haven't seamed the sleeves because I know some folks here who want to see it (and I like watching people trying to figure out how to fold it into a jacket). It will probably hang out as a store sample, since I'm not aware of any upcoming babies.
I used just under 2 balls of Regia 6-ply 'Square Color' (colourway 1126) on 3.5mm needles, and ended up with basically a newborn size, it is quite wee (and as everyone else knows, ohmywordsocute). Hey look, my needle storage system! (circulars hang on my wall elsewhere).
In other news, MALABRGIO LACEWEIGHT. I believe the proper term is 'fall down. Go boom'.
Colour number VAA 51. Descriptive, nu?
It's this wonderful swampy green mix.
The pictures don't really do it justice, it have more olive tones to it.
For some reason this colour makes me think of dinosaurs...
I have no idea why.
I'm also thinking Laminaria for this stuff. Mmm.
And finally, thank you ALL for the wonderful comments on my vest. it has been getting plenty of wear in this transitional season.
Have a good one, peoples!
