We now return to our regularly scheduled knitting...

Isn't high-speed internet access great? Especially when it has been fixed and running smooth!
So much to report... where to begin? How about with an almost finished object?

Yes, that very warped rectangle will soon be a baby sweater. An Elizabeth Zimmerman Baby Surprise Jacket, actually. See??

I am ready to do the bind-off row, but I'm going to add an applied I-cord edging around the body and the sleeves instead of the purlwise bind-off that the pattern calls for. I am also going to try it on an actual baby to check the sleeve length and possibly pick up and add some length and then the applied I-cord. I got little shank buttons in both fuchsia and yellow, and will make a decision when I see the finished jacket, maybe even use both!

I really love this sweater and will be sure to knit more! I will have to do some research about incorporating longer sleeves into the pattern to avoid having to pick up and knit at the cuffs!

I need to get that pattern - I tried to read the EZ books but had a hard time understanding them so I didn't buy them.
