Another One Off The Needles28 March 2009
Just finished a Baby Surprise Jacket for a baby in Afghanistan, where it is VERY cold in winter, so I’ve put a high double band collar on it. This is only the second stocking stitch Baby Surprise I’ve knitted and it’s even quicker than the garter stitch ones. (Note for non-knitters – stocking stitches are taller than garter stitches, so fewer rows are needed. Interesting this, isn’t it?)
The knitting is slightly imperfect because I was experimenting with different ways of doing the increases but I don’t suppose either the child or her mother will lodge a complaint.
Do remember that I’ll be once again collecting garments for the Winterwarm Project at the end of August. All the items go to babies and children in Afghanistan. I’ll tell you how to get them to me, or to the headquarters of the Project in Melbourne, nearer the time.
Hats, gloves, scarves, sweaters, cardigans, socks – anything to keep a child warm. Wool, please.
