On the road trip I ran out of things to knit. I know, I was as shocked as you! Fortunately there are a few awesome yarn shops in St. Louis, so I took this opportunity to knit something I've been wanting to for a while – the baby surprise jacket. It's a pattern by Elizabeth Zimmerman, who wrote all these amazingly awesome patterns back in the 50s and 60s that are so cool everyone still wants to make them. I also bought the Knitter's Almanac, but that's another story. Anyway, I started this, ripped it out, started, ripped, then finally got it together and finished it up last Saturday. It was like magic! Anyone who's knitted this pattern knows what I mean; you basically knit this weirdly shaped rectangle, then fold it a certain way and there it is! This will be a gift for Hazel this Christmas from me. It should fit her right around then, a little over a year old. I love it, and I'm going to definitely make another one soon!
