Coat of many colours

Stripy BSJ

Nothing screams "stashbuster" quite like introducing two new colours in the last 8 rows of a project. Still, I think the picked up edging on the neck carries it off.

Pattern: Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmerman
Pattern source: The Opinionated Knitter
Yarn: Rowan Pure Wool DK
Needles: 4mm
Recipient: baby Peter

It's not traditional to blog something before handing it over but I might be seeing Aliki and Peter tonight and I'm hoping that the promise of knitwear will act as an added incentive for them to make it to the pub!



It certainly will!

Ha - there's nothing like bribery for getting a result!
