New in the neighbourhood...

There's a new baby next-door-but-one; I knew his gender and estimated birth date, but only bumped into one of his parents a fortnight after the event. So I whipped out a Baby Surprise Jacket and took it along...

The yarn is King Cole Mirage in colour Helsinki, bought at the stall in Durham covered market - it's lovely stuff to knit with (if you don't mind a 50% acrylic content)... and I got a lovely thankyou card from the family at the weekend...

This is one of the few patterns I've knit several times. Every one is different, and it's so fun and easy and impressive. I now feel the need to make another, which I will try to suppress!

Looks great!!! I love that colorway - it's subtle, but interesting...
