Surprises

Hey, here are the Baby Surprise Jackets:



This one is handspun superwash BFL from Spunky Eclectic, made for Sunflowerfairy's new son.

And this one...



is Lola from Schaefer Yarn, for Peaceful Knitter's impending baby. She and Sweetie had a baby shower this weekend. (Their house always makes me want to move in with them, do you think they'd mind?)

Rather than games, we decorated onesies. Although my last stencil-related experience was a silk screening attempt in elementary school (which went badly), I freezer-paper stenciled 3 goldfish without disaster. It turns out that 25 extra years of practicing fine motor skills, xacto knife usage, etc., make all the difference!

You can move in as long as you keep knitting cute sweaters for Peaceful Baby!

As the mother of a recipient of one of these lovely sweaters, I totally agree. I love the colors and wonder if these sweaters come in sizes larger than newborn and in the color purple?? Hint hint...

I love these! Your posts haven't been showing up in bloglines so I just caught up with the last few. Altho it was nice to catch up with you in person at KnitNew Haven
