Surprise! Here’s another Baby Surprise Jacket finally completed.. Can anyone resist knitting one of these? And if you haven’t yet…I just have no words for you. Not only is it a quick knit but it is also beyond beautiful. There will be plenty of these coming off my needles in the next few months.
Surprise, Surprise!! The cuteness factor was just taken to another level. A hood, yes a prefectly structured, functional, cute as hell hood. And you all know I can’t resist a hood. The instructions for this one were provided by Sarah. I had the pleasure of meeting her at Camp this past July and have now had the chance to sample one of her unventions. Love it!!!!!
Just look at that. I know I’ve used the word cute twice already but can you blame me. Too freakin’ cute…ok how about adorable. Sarah’s instructions are so in keeping with the classic Elizabeth Zimmermann knitting style. As you’re knitting it you’re not quite sure it will work. Actually I was thinking this is going to be way too big but I kept the faith….Thank you Sarah and Elizabeth.
I can’t wait to pull that little hood up over my baby’s head…
SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE!!! Yes I said my baby….The Earthtones Girl is going to an Earthtones Mum! We’re due next May. I’ll save Chris’s reaction/response for another post. But suffice it to say the man I’ve known for 12 years has been replaced with one of the most loving, thoughtful, gentle, teary-eyed-all-time-men I’ve every met. It’s as amazing to watch his transformation as it is my own. Our own.
So there you go…finally an explanation for my absence, blog neglect and lack of focus. All my attenion has been on my little one. I never thought it was possible to be so in love with someone you’ve never met. It sounds cliche but who cares. This is magic…so now that the “cat is out of the bag” I can post much more freely and there will be lots of baby gear in the works. I already started this one and this one will be close on it’s heels.
We don’t know what we’re having and we have no plans to find out. So I will wait and knit and put as much love as I can in every stitch….
Oh and just a word of warning. If anyone thought I was a big sap before, look out. I’ve become a walking Hallmark card….mushy, sappiness everywhere…
