FO No 7


Pattern: Cable Yoke Jacket from Simply Baby by
Debbie Bliss.
Yarn: 8 ply pure new wool, 3 1/2 balls
Started: 14th February Finished: 20th February
Size: 9 - 12 months
This was a quick and easy knit, and I loved the way the cables popped out after knitting it. I think I will give it a good pressing to straighten out the bump where the zip is though. I dont know whether it would really fit a 9 month old though, I think it looks more for a 6 month old baby. I always had the impression that her patterns turned out quite big but this one may have been smaller since the pattern actually used cotton instead of wool. I think this is the first project I have finished in the colorway for PS too, so a double bonus there. Now I am off to pick out another pattern to knit up and use some stash too.

Great job!!! I love this.

Susan said...

How quick did that happen. It would take me at least a week to knit that.
It looks great, you did a superb job.

This is gorgeous and another perfect looking zip! The mere thought of zips freak me out.

You are a knitting machine!!!

I am finding it hard to knit in this heat..That or its the fact I dont want to be knitting the birthday cardigan I have to get finished in 11days!! lol.

Better get my butt moving so I can get back to the smaller things that are ok to knit in hot weather! lol

I LOVE that jacket! Its just GORGEOUS!

I concur with eveyones comments it is a lovely jacket. The zip looks good. (don't press the zip to much and end up with a sealed zip like grumperinas)

PlumStitches said...

The color is lovely. I'm impressed with all your zipper sweaters, they intimidate me!

that's a great sweater. i wish i had your energy to knit things up so fast. i have so many things i want to knit but i don't have the time or the energy!

Renee said...

Wow - that was fast. And I like the colour you used wayyyy better than in the book. In the book, I looked at the sweater and thought "Meh, take or leave". In this colour "Wowzers!". Great job.

monica said...

I love that sweater and I love the color. Great work. I will have to check that book out again when I tak the kids to the librbary. I have a ton of baby knitting to do.

Meredith said...

Such a beautiful sweater - and unbelievable speed!! I'm obsessed with Debbie Bliss baby patterns lately. I think I have about 5 projects from her books in the queue (and I don't even have any kids of my own)!

Heather said...

baby knits are so fabulous and I'm stunned at how quick you finished it!

Lovely!

Karen said...

Wow, you are so quick. Your new FO looks great!

pamela wynne said...

Beautiful! And a lovely color, too. My sister is expecting, and I had passed right by this one in the Simply Baby book -- now I have to reconsider!

Susan said...

The finished jacket is lovely, and such a practical little garment too. You must be a quick knitter.
