Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Jacket
I am in the midst of making my first Baby Surprise Jacket designed by Elizabeth Zimmerman. My sister got me going on it. Have you ever made one? It is all made in knit only in one large piece with only two seams. It is so strange to see it develop because you cannot tell which part you are making. It does seem to look best in wools but since we are an allergic family, baby items are made in acrylic only. That way they can go in the machine to wash and dry for moms too busy to hand wash and air dry baby things.
If you feel like having something different to do, try a BSJ. I may just make a larger one for me one of these days. Right now I am trying to beat the stork to DDs SILs house with a layette due in late February.
