Thank you, EZ!


How can it be that I've never knitted Elizabeth Zimmermann's Baby Surprise Jacket until now? Her original design debuted in the 1960's, and has totally stood the test of time. It's genius! So I have no excuse.

I recently purchased a Subtle Stripes Spinning Kit from cosymakes. Cosette's colors are fabulous. Check 'em out!

I handspun the wonderfully soft BFL wool into approximate 200 yards in sport/DK weight. It worked into this sweater beautifully. I was, however, a bit short on the yardage, so I pulled it together with some of my other hand-dyed handspun yarns that coordinated nicely.

Add a few vintage buttons, and ta-dah! A beautiful little jacket for a sweet baby!!
