Pattern: Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmermann
Yarn: Jo-Ann Sensations Bellezza Collection Tesoro (100% wool), color 8001/Lime, three skeins (87 yards each) with stripes in Cascade 220, color 8401, leftover from J's sweater
Needles: US 5 (3.75 mm) 32" Addi Turbo circs
Started/Completed: sometime in late March?/May 1
Recipient: baby Aidan
Mods: I added a few rows on to the end to accommodate the second stripe and what I felt was a sufficient border of the main color before binding off.
There's not much to say about this sweater, is there? If you've ever knit any EZ patterns, then you surely know the genius of her work. It's true that an oddly shaped blob becomes this adorable sweater with the sewing of just two seams (which, incidentally, I just did in whipstitch because I couldn't figure out how to do mattress stitch with garter stitch going in two different directions).
The buttons don't show up very well in the picture; they're a very neutral pearlized white. If I'd had more time, I would have gone button shopping for something cuter, but baby Aidan didn't give me much notice!
This is off for a good soak and then a lay out to block. On to tee-tiny baby socks!
