Surprise!

(now there's an original post title - I'm sure anyone's who's knit this has said the same thing...)


Whatever - the Baby Surprise Jacket is complete. I bought the yarn on Tuesday night, started the sweater Wednesday, and finished it Sunday night while I watched the Tony Awards. ( Man, I love Broadway...) Monday, I went to Fabricland, got buttons, sewed them on and sewed the seams, and done! Well in advance of the 25th (the last day of school around here). Now all I have to do is wrap it (and the other teacher gift), make a couple of cards, and I'm done for another year.

My son picked out the buttons - he figured that if an infant saw bumblebees early, maybe they wouldn't scare him/her later on. Hard to fight with that kind of logic. Plus, they're just too darn cute!

Oh, that's wonderful. A cute sweater and a wonderful son who's thinking of things from a little one's point of view in order to protect them from fear. Cool.

That is a very cool jacket. Love that you went out to buy the yarn too. Oh, the irony of us stashers!!!

Wow! Your FO speed puts me to shame. Cute little jacket. A 'one of a kind' for the teacher.

Reading your post I just realized this June - for the first time in more than a dozen years I don't have to produce a single teacher gift! (Although I must admit I never gave anyone anything as fab as that little sweater!
