O's BSJ in Action

Finally, a Baby Surprise Jacket ( toddlerised ) that fits O and will for awhile.


I am still in love with knitting this amazing pattern, even after knitting three, with wool for more but then I have more wool for most things !
And how much do I LOVE a pattern that requires so very little sewing up, 2 shoulder seams and thats it .. yes really thats it.


O is pretty happy with it too and loves the buttons.


These gorgeous buttons, made by my very talented friend Gill, fit with the jacket so well.


Pattern for the BSJ here - http://www.schoolhousepress.com/

Lots of help and advice with pattern to be found on Ravelry - http://www.ravelry.com

Toddlerising help here - http://zigzagstitch.wordpress.com/2008/08/05/the-toddlerized-bsj/

Can anyone point me in the direction for the Elizabeth Zimmermann childs hooded jacket ( the tomten ) .. am itching to give that a go.
