Baby Surprise Jacket

I simply LOVE the Baby Surprise Jacket that Elizabeth Zimmermann designed in 1968. When you’ve gotten used to reading the instructions it’s simple and fun to knit and the result is brilliant! A piece that doesn’t look like anything you’ve ever seen turns into a beautiful baby jacket. I love to try it out with different types of yarn to make different sizes.

This is my latest BSJ, in blue and white for my newest nephew.

Baby boots!

I have so many friends having babies these days! I love to knit gifts for newborns so the last few weeks I’ve been doing blankets and little caps. The other day I bought Ysolda’s books Whimsical little knits 1 and 2 and have since knitted the cutest baby booties I have ever seen. It’s a great project if you need a little gift and a perfect opportunity to show off cute little buttons you might have in your stash :)

I also knitted a Bring-it-on-baby-blanket in bright “girlier” colors. I just love this pattern and to use bright colors!

A little blanket

Just finished one Bring-it-on-baby blanket from Pickles.no and have casted on for another one! The one I finished is for a little boy due very soon.

This blanket is an easy – and yet so cute – pattern and with the gorgeus colors of the Ístex Kambgarn it’s pleasure to knit! Having 5 friends with babys on the way fast and beautiful knits are more than welcome :)
