I finished the Baby Surprise Jacket from the book "Knitting Workshop". It's a really interesting pattern and I will make another some day but I needed the DVD for help interpreting Elizabeth Zimmermann's brief original instructions. The DVD is great and Meg Swansen (EZ's daughter) explains everything very clearly. I still need to find the right buttons for it. I'm not sure who will be the recipient but I'm thinking that it might fit now-toddler Dawson.
I used my handspun superwash merino and love how bouncy the resulting fabric feels. I was starting to panic about running out of yarn near the end of the project and here's how much was left. Whew!
I might just attempt another one in a larger size using the pattern ABCSJ which has directions for sizing the BSJ for older children and adults.
